Fine-Tuning Our Future Physicians

Apr 6 2012 @ 5:07pm

The MCAT is getting an update for the first time in more than 20 years: 

The standardized test that all doctors-in-training must take will soon add a section on "psychological, social and biological" sciences. The aim is to bring the medical entrance exam better in line with medical research showing that health is as much influenced by behavior and relationships as it is by biology and genetics. These changes have been in the works for over four years now, vetted by various committees and academics until their approval last month.
