    Prerequisite Question

    Advertisements



    Windsor lists the prerequisite courses to the MD program as:

    Chemistry (w/ lab) 1 year
    General Biology 1 year
    Physics (w/ lab) 1 semester (recommended)

    Almost every MD program in the US lists prereqs as:

    Gen. or Inorganic Chem (w/ lab) 1 year
    Organic Chem ( w/ lab) 1 year
    General Biology ( w/ lab) 1 year
    Physics (w/lab) 1 year

    My questions are: Are the prereqs laid out by Windsor sufficient to succeed in the MD program and score well on the USMLE ?

    Why would Windsor exclude the 1 year of Organic Chem and a full year of Physics that are normally prereqs at other MD programs?

    Regarding admission, would it matter if I took the prereqs at a Community College?

    Thanks in advance.

    organic chem and physics are courses that medical schools in the US use to weed out the sheeps from the goats
