PMD - Pre-Medical Science

PMD-110 Preparing the Christian Health Professional

This course is designed to introduce the freshman pre-med student to a Christian perspective of a career in medical science. Emphasis will be placed on the Christian medical scientist's role as a "world-changer" by reconciling a Christian worldview with the requirements, demands, and dilemmas encountered in medical (graduate) school and in the practice of medicine. For the purposes of this course a "medical scientist" is defined as a person engaged in any of the following: medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine, optometry, physical therapy, occupational therapy, biomedical research, or physician's assistant. This course is not intended for nursing or athletic training majors and does not fulfill any of the General Education requirements of the institution.


PMD-310 Perspectives in Scientific Reasoning

This course is designed to assist students in preparing for comprehensive assessments that will measure their ability to integrate science, math, English, and other disciplines in a meaningful way. The development of critical thinking and reasoning skills will be emphasized by studying and analyzing cross-disciplinary problems such as the application of principles of physics and chemistry in the human body. This course will be helpful in preparation for national tests such as the MCAT, DAT, OAT, and GRE. Students will be expected to have completed the course requirements for their respective test, since the anticipated sequence is to take this course in the spring and then to take the test within a month or two of commpletion of this course.
