Preparing for Changes in the MCAT Exam—Opportunities and Challenges for Sociology Programs

In the Spring of 2015, a new version of the MCAT® exam will be in place.  One quarter of the exam focuses upon material from the social sciences, particularly sociology and psychology.   All of the students who are currently in their first and second years of college will take this new version of the exam.  Many medical schools are considering requiring introductory sociology for admission.  These changes could have a significant impact upon course enrollments in sociology.  This workshop focuses upon these changes and how we can best serve our students who hope to apply to medical school.
