Johns Hopkins University Online MCAT Preparation CourseThe Psychological and Brain Sciences Department at Johns Hopkins University is offering a new online course this summer, which I wanted to make you aware of.

AS.200.152 MCAT Preparation for Social and Behavioral Sciences is a 3-credit asynchronous online course that runs from May 30 to June 30, 2023. The cost for the course is $3,525.

This course is meant to prepare students who will take the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) by focusing specifically on the social and behavioral sciences portion. The content of the course draws heavily from psychology and sociology, but it is not a replacement for courses in those areas. Topics covered will include: sensation & perception, cognitive development, memory and intelligence, behavioral conditioning, learning and education, states of consciousness, stress & emotions, the brain and nervous system, behavioral genetics, identities and personality traits, mental illnesses and psychological disorders, attitudes and behavioral change, social norms, group processes, prejudice and bias, social relationships, family dynamics, and sociocultural institutions. This course will *not* cover other required sections of the MCAT (e.g., organic chemistry). Coursework will entail extensive testing and re-testing of concepts and knowledge with multiple-choice question assessments, along with readings and video presentations. The course is taught by associate teaching professor Dylan Selterman.
