Postbaccalaureate Premedical Program

Curriculum and Courses

The academic curriculum of the Postbaccalaureate Premedical Program is designed to fulfill the prerequisites for medical school admission. Because course requirements for medical school can vary, our premedical curriculum is designed to prepare Postbac Premed students to train anywhere in the nation. For the sequencing of the following required courses, please review the program timetables: traditionalpart-time, or accelerated. While enrolled in the program, students must fulfill all requirements with courses offered by Columbia's Faculty of Arts & Sciences and they are expected to have their advisors approve their programs of study. In addition to the following courses, students must gain at least 120 hours of health care experience.

English

One year of college English or the equivalent is required. Most Postbac Premed students have completed this requirement as undergraduates and do not need to complete course work in English at Columbia. Students should inform their advisors early on when they are especially interested in particular medical school programs (linkage or non-linkage), since some may have specific requirements for this subject of study.

Mathematics

Students are required to complete one year (6 points) of college mathematics beyond pre-calculus, consisting of one term of calculus and one term of statistics. (Some students elect to take a second semester of calculus instead of statistics.)

If a student has not already successfully completed Calculus I, it may be taken as a co-requisite of Physics I or General Chemistry I.

Courses

MATH UN1101 CALCULUS I. 3.00 points.

Prerequisites: (see Courses for First-Year Students). Functions, limits, derivatives, introduction to integrals, or an understanding of pre-calculus will be assumed. (SC)

Biochemistry (Recommended)

Because increasing numbers of medical schools require a semester of biochemistry, it is strongly recommended that postbacs take biochemistry. Usually, students take it during the application year.

Courses

BIOC UN3300 Biochemistry. 3 points.

Prerequisites: one year each of Introductory Biology and General Chemistry. Corequisites: Organic Chemistry. Primarily aimed at nontraditional students and undergraduates who have course conflicts with BIOC UN3501.

Biochemistry is the study of the chemical processes within organisms that give rise to the immense complexity of life. This complexity emerges from a highly regulated and coordinated flow of chemical energy from one biomolecule to another. This course serves to familiarize students with the spectrum of biomolecules (carbohydrates, lipids, amino acids, nucleic acids, etc.) as well as the fundamental chemical processes (glycolysis, citric acid cycle, fatty acid metabolism, etc.) that allow life to happen. In particular, this course will employ active learning techniques and critical thinking problem-solving to engage students in answering the question: how is the complexity of life possible? NOTE: While Organic Chemistry is listed as a corequisite, it is highly recommended that you take Organic Chemistry beforehand.

Chemistry 

Students are required to complete one year (8 points) of general chemistry and one semester (3 points) of general chemistry laboratory.The General Chemistry sequence must be completed before taking Biology or Organic Chemistry. General chemistry lecture courses have corresponding, mandatory recitations. The laboratory course has a mandatory one-hour laboratory lecture course associated with it, and should be taken alongside or after General Chemistry II. AP credits cannot be used to fulfill the general chemistry requirement.

Chemistry is a course sequence that students may begin in the fall or spring term. Students who enroll in Chemistry I in the spring should plan to take the 12-week Chemistry II course in the summer.

Courses

CHEM UN1403 GENERAL CHEMISTRY I-LECTURES. 4.00 points.

CC/GS: Partial Fulfillment of Science Requirement

Corequisites: MATH UN1101
Corequisites: MATH UN1101 Preparation equivalent to one year of high school chemistry is assumed. Students lacking such preparation should plan independent study of chemistry over the summer or take CHEM UN0001 before taking CHEM UN1403. Topics include stoichiometry, states of matter, nuclear properties, electronic structures of atoms, periodic properties, chemical bonding, molecular geometry, introduction to quantum mechanics and atomic theory, introduction to organic and biological chemistry, solid state and materials science, polymer science and macromolecular structures and coordination chemistry. Although CHEM UN1403 and CHEM UN1404 are separate courses, students are expected to take both terms sequentially. The order of presentation of topics may differ from the order presented here, and from year to year. Students must ensure they register for the recitation that corresponds to the lecture section. When registering, please add your name to the wait list for the recitation corresponding to the lecture section (1405 for lecture sec 001; 1407 for lecture sec 002; 1409 for lecture sec 003; 1411 for lecture sec 004). Information about recitation registration will be sent out before classes begin. DO NOT EMAIL THE INSTRUCTOR. Please check the Directory of Classes for details
