Pre-Medical Studies (Spring 2, Fall 2, Year 2)
In the Pre-Medical Studies curriculum pathway students are required to enroll in the Health and Society module (course), alongside three other modules. Clinical placements are included as part of the Health and Society module which makes this program ideal for students wishing to attend Medical School after graduation. In general, students complement the Health & Society Module by selecting other courses in the School of Biomedical & Health Sciences. While they are not restricted to only this school and still have the flexibility to choose courses from the full King's module catalog they will still be subject to Pre-Medical Studies tuition price.
Arts & Sciences or Global Health (Spring 3, Fall 3, Year 3)
As part of the Arts & Sciences or Global Health curriculum pathway students can select modules (courses) offered by the School of Arts & Humanities, School of Biomedical & Health Sciences, School of Law, School of Natural & Mathematical Sciences, School of Nursing & Midwifery (excluding clinical placements) or School of Social Science & Public Policy. All course selections are subject to approval by King's College and not guaranteed.
Students wishing to take a more specific focus can choose the Global Health track and simply indicate this on the first line within their letter of intent. Students participating in this track are required to take Introduction to Global Health and Introduction to Social Medicine alongside two other courses within the Arts & Sciences program. The Global Health track does not include clinical placements and is ideal for a number of different majors.
