Online Medical College Admission Test Guided Study
The Hispanic Center of Excellence launched a new initiative in
2014 based on an identified need of our undergraduate student
population. In order to continue our support of undergraduate entry into
medical school from our partner schools, we have built an online
guided-study program for the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT). We
are creating small groups (no more than 12) of students studying for
their MCAT exams. Those seeking direct application to medical school
should have at least a 3.5 OGPA and a 3.6 SGPA and be willing to commit
10 to 12 hours a week or more, to preparation for the MCAT exam. Those
in pipeline programs, such as EMSAP or JAMP, or those who plan to apply
to a post-bacc or master program, must have a 3.25 OGPA.
Most of the activities are asynchronous, but students will be expected
to spend time in the learning management system at least 3 to 4 days of a
7-day week. We will be utilizing online resources, study guides, and
some original content. We will expect students to obtain AAMC
membership, purchase at least one additional practice exam, as well as a
set of study guides. Dr. Toombs-Smith has recreating her Verbal
Reasoning as an e-course and even published a book version. Several of
our students raised their Verbal scores from 4-7 to 10-11 after Dr.
Toombs-Smith's classes. We are excited to have her support for this
Students will have regular contact from our team. We are including many
checkpoints, activities, and interactive components to ensure that our
students do not get lost along the way. These are not classes or courses
with the exception of Dr. Toombs-Smith's contribution. We are providing
a plan, support, and mentoring to the students. We will outline
activities - video lessons, flashcards, practice questions, etc., for
each day. The student will need to take the initiative to complete the
activities and demonstrate that completion.
We will help our students to learn how and where to find MCAT
preparation resources, how to evaluate those resources, how to utilize
best, and how to find answers to their questions. We will help them to
tailor their practice. Most importantly, we will mentor the students
through three months of study, continue mentoring them through the MCAT
exam, help them evaluate their results, and support them through the
admissions process and beyond.
New cohort started May 2016 - Online Guided MCAT Study Program
