The MCAT and Sociology
Starting in 2015, the new MCAT (Medical College Admission Test) will include a required section on the social and behavioral sciences. 30 percent of that section is specifically about sociology. This may mean that pre-medical curricula across the country will start requiring Introduction to Sociology, as well as Introduction to Psychology. It certainly means that there will be increasing numbers of pre-med students in sociology classes.
