The courses required for admission to podiatry school are listed below, along with their Binghamton University equivalents. With the exception of English, the remaining coursework is covered on the MCAT. Therefore, you need to complete biology, inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry and and physics prior to taking the MCAT. There are several ways in which you can create a course schedule in order to complete these course requirements in a timely manner. These, as well as other information, are discussed in the 2015-16 Freshman Sophomore Pre-Health Handbook (pdf).
