S20: Chemistry and the Premedical Curriculum

Organizer: Joel Shulman (University of Cincinnati, USA)

Presider: Joel Shulman (University of Cincinnati, USA)

In 2009, the Association of American Medical Colleges and the Howard Hughes Medical Institute released a report entitled “Scientific Foundations for Future Physicians” (SFFP). This report, produced in response to “concerns about the science content in the current premedical and medical education curricula,” emphasizes competencies for premed students rather than mandating specific courses for admission to medical school. This symposium will provide information on SFFP and its implications for undergraduate chemistry curricula, and will provide examples of innovative approaches already being introduced by chemistry programs to better meet the needs of pre-professional students.
