Medical School Requirements

Course Requirements for Selected Medical Schools

The list of Hunter College Courses is meant as a catalogue of courses in selecting appropriate and corresponding courses to an allied health professions's school admissions requirements. This catalogue of courses is not meant to detail pre-requisites for admission to all health professions schools. Again, this catalogue of courses is listed to assist students in their course planning.

Course Pre-Requirements for each individual school are listed within the school's text box; students may refer to the individual school's requirements and compare to the corresponding Hunter College course.
