NYUNews.com has a nice editorial about why premed curricula need to be updated to better prepare students for changes in healthcare as well as the changes in the new MCAT test. The writer recommends more social science classes and notes the growing importance placed on biochemistry.

But what do you think should be done to the pre med curriculum and, equally important, what do you think WILL be done to the pre med curriculum?
