Introductory Physics for the Life Sciences and the Revised MCAT
  Location: SS 104
  Date: Tuesday, Aug.2
  Time: 1:55 PM -2:15 PM
  Author: Robert Hilborn, University of Texas at Dallas
  Co-Author(s): None
  Abstract: The Association of American Medical Colleges is in the process of reviewing and revising the Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT) with the expectation that the new exam will go "live" in 2014 or 2015. At the same time, the AAMC Committee on Admissions has recommended that medical schools drop the traditional course requirements and replace them with a list of competencies: what entering medical students should know and be able to do, particularly in the natural and mathematical sciences. I will review the current status of the MCAT revision and discuss how changes in the MCAT and in admissions requirements for medical schools may affect introductory physics courses for the life sciences.
