Premedical Program

Metropolitan University College of Medicine provides a 90-credit PM program. MUCM’s PM program not only fulfills all the minimum requirements for joining an MD program (courses like physics, mathematics, inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry, English, and general biology) but also provides our students with the sound foundational knowledge needed to excel in the MD courses. Successful completion of this program allows the student to enter the Basic Science component of the MD program. Students who have graduated high school can join this program. Premedical Program is a 45-week, 3-semester program that awards 90 college-level (undergrad) credits. Advanced placement is possible for students who have fulfilled a portion of the prerequisites either by attending college-level courses or completing Associates degree or Bachelor’s degree. Depending on the advanced placement the duration of the Premedical program can be less than 3 semesters.
