MEDICAL COLLEGE ADMISSION TEST (MCAT)

GENERAL INFORMATION:

The MCAT assesses mastery of basic concepts in biology, chemistry, (general and organic), and physics; competence at scientific problem solving and critical thinking; and writing skills.  The skills and concepts tested by the MCAT are those identified by physicians and medical educators as prerequisite for the practice of medicine.  Medical school faculty hope that testing for these skills on the MCAT will encourage undergraduates with broad educational backgrounds to consider careers in the health professions and will stimulate premedical students to investigate a wide variety of course offerings outside the natural sciences.
