The suggested curriculum plans below are designed to provide you with a solid foundation in the sciences. Success in these courses and their lab component, coupled with hands-on clinical and research experiences, has been shown to create well-rounded and successful candidates to health professional schools. Typically, students need two years to complete all of the science prerequisite courses for medical or dental school (allied health professions may take longer than two years).
For students seeking to prepare for PA, PT, DVM and other programs, we will work with you to design an appropriate curriculum. Students should research programs they are interested in applying to prior to meeting with an advisor to have a good idea of prerequisites, as these may vary greatly from school to school.
All students accepted to the program must successfully satisfy the precalculus course requirement prior to enrolling in any of the science courses.
We strongly encourage applicants to complete Precalculus prior to entering the program. However, if the student has little to no math background, the NYU-equivalent "precalculus" course will be included in your curriculum plan.
Curriculum Plan (if precalc requirement has been met):
Principles of Biology I
General Chemistry I
Principles of Biology II
Principles of Biology Lab
Calculus I (if needed)
Organic Chemistry I
General Physics I
Apply for regular admission to health professional school
Organic Chemistry II
General Physics II
*Tuition for 12-18 credits is based on the full-time flat rate, see the Bursar’s website for more information.
We strongly encourage applicants to complete Precalculus prior to entering the program. However, if the student has little to no math background please refer to the "needs precalc" plan below.
