The University of Rhode Island Pre-Health Organization

Pre-medical students affiliated with Sprout and STEM and Brown Emergency Medicine are collaborating with the URI Pre-Health Organization to offer eight MCAT tutoring sessions between December 28 and January 21.

Participating tutors have scored in the 90th percentile and plan to review a variety of information pertaining to MCAT preparation. Session one involves an introduction to the MCAT, the registration process, and good studying habits, followed by commentary on resources that facilitate efficient studying, such as Anki and Jack Westin. Sessions two through eight review some of the most challenging science content tested on the MCAT.

A competitive score requires a strong understanding of the concepts presented throughout these sessions. It is important for students to realize that the MCAT is more concerned with their critical thinking ability rather than their memorizations skills, although an excellent score will absolutely require extensive memorization. With that said, tutors will dissect what appear to be reverberating topics into their underlying principles.

While sessions are technically free, we encourage participants to make a small donation of $5 per session on behalf of the Sprout and STEM Scholarship Fund. All proceeds from the campaign are allocated toward two $500 academic scholarships for a graduating high school senior pursuing careers in science or math.
