Pre-Medical Track

Pre-Medical Tracks with a BS degree

The Pre-Medical Tracks at the Faculty of Health Sciences (FHS) provide unique opportunities that allow interested and capable students to graduate with a BS degree in a Health Sciences major, in addition to completion of the pre-medical requirements needed for the application to medical school.

The programs offer students pursuing admission into medical education (at the University of Balamand or similarly modeled programs at other universities) the advantage of multidisciplinary education. They provide students with a strong academic foundation and rigorous preparation for the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT).

The MCAT is a standardized, multiple-choice examination designed to assess the examinee's problem solving, critical thinking, writing skills, and knowledge of science concepts and principles prerequisite to the study of medicine. Graduates through these tracks should be equipped to compete effectively through admission processes into medical schools.

  • - The FHS Pre-Medical Tracks prepare students for the MCAT exam by:
  • - Providing a strong and competitive academic foundation
  • - Organizing training and practice sessions
  • - Conducting exam trials

Throughout these tracks, while completing pre-medical requirements, students will acquire relevant knowledge, develop problem-solving and analytical skills, engage in critical thinking, gain leadership experience and participate in volunteer and community activities.

The Pre-Medical Tracks can be pursued at FHS either on the Main Campus of the University (Al Kurah) or in the Achrafieh Campus (Beirut) or at Souk el Gharb campus.

Pre-Medical Tracks can be studied in conjunction with any of the majors at the FHS. A minimum of three years is needed, depending on the circumstances.

Students must have a strong academic record and meet University admission criteria in:

  • - SAT
  • - Secondary school grades
  • - Class rank.

Interested students are invited to contact us and visit the Faculty to discuss further.
