Introductory Basic Science Course

The introductory basic science course takes place two weeks prior to the start of orientation. This is a great way to get acquainted with the pace of medical school, meet some classmates in a smaller group setting, and move in early if you’re eligible (typically starting the Wednesday before the intro course begins).

You are eligible to enroll if one or more of the following apply

  1. Non-Science Major.
  2. Not taken a Biochemistry Course.
  3. Been out of school for two or more years.

The objective of the introductory Basic Science Course is to help students acquire the concepts for successful participation in the first basic science courses taken at Einstein, Molecular and Cellular Foundations of Medicine (MCFM). The topics in Introductory Basic Science are

  • Immunology
  • Biochemistry: Metabolism
  • Genetics
  • Introduction to Histology and to Bioethics
  • A workshop on study skills, time management and test taking
