Medical education at AUB follows the American model of medical education. Students are admitted to medical school after obtaining a bachelor degree. This could be in any field, but students are required to take specific core courses in biology, chemistry, physics, humanities, social sciences and English language, as prerequisite courses. The MCAT (Medical College Admissions Test) is also required for admission. Admission is competitive and based on academic achievement in the undergraduate years, the MCAT scores and the results of an interview process.To know more about admission to the medical school, please refer to: www.aub.edu.lb/fm/medicaleducation/ www.aub.edu.lb/registrar/Pages/fm.aspx
