The WikiPremed curriculum

The WikiPremed MCAT Course consists of twelve modules. Each module represents approximately one or two weeks of study. Depending on your starting point and schedule, the full course represents from three to six months of dedicated focus. Each module contains course videos, guidance, learning management resources, and suggested assignments. The important thing is not whether you complete every single assignment. The important thing is to achieve the learning goals of the curriculum in sequence. The resources of WikiPremed can be utilized as a stand-alone MCAT course or in combination with another course. There are no restricted areas on this website. You can study at WikiPremed for as long as you want.

This free learning program teaches the physical and biological sciences within a unified, spiraling curriculum. This approach was developed over many years working closely with college students in small group teaching. Within a spiraling curriculum, you are exposed to a number of important concepts early. As the curriculum progresses, we return to those concepts again and again expanding on the foundation established earlier.

The Sciences

WikiPremed is navigated as a curricular progression in the syllabus. However, through the main menu, you may also navigate WikiPremed at the level of the science and social science topics that make up the knowledge-base.

WikiPremed has two ways of outlining the scientific knowledge. The first follows the traditional rules. For example, physics is divided into topics within mechanics, waves, thermodynamics, electricity & magnetism, etc. The second manner presents the topics in the integrated sequence of the Main Progression, the order of topics within our spiraling curriculum.

Live tutoring

Via Skype with the creator of WikiPremed

Live teaching is essential to the creative life of WikiPremed. For this reason a small number of students at any time are preparing for the new MCAT with John Wetzel, the creator of WikiPremed, as their one-on-one tutor, receiving the best MCAT course from the most experienced instructor in the field. This is a private, one-on-one course fully dedicated to helping you achieve your goals. Given John's experience and skill level, this represents a tremendous opportunity for any premedical student. The availability of tutoring slots is difficult to predict. Please contact WikiPremed for information regarding Skype tutoring if you are interested in this opportunity.

Cost & Scheduling

The tutoring fee is $80/hr. Sessions are either two or three hours long and meetings are once per week. Typically, twelve to twenty sessions are ideal for a comprehensive review. However, the pace and scope of the course can vary with the student's starting point. Scheduling is extremely flexible.

John Wetzel will only work with students who have ample time to study between tutoring sessions. After each session, the student is expected to carefully review their notes from that session, carry out course assignments and prepare for the next session. In addition to WikiPremed materials, you will need the Examkrackers set or the Berkeley Review set. Complete conceptual review materials from one of the national courses may also suffice. You will also need AAMC practice materials.

Why WikiPremed Is Free

One big problem with a free course is that people have a hard time paying serious attention to anything that's free. That's human nature. Please forgive WikiPremed for being free. Remember that just because WikiPremed has no restricted areas or premium membership, or even any advertising, that does not prevent WikiPremed from being the most serious learning program for the new MCAT. WikiPremed is the most sophisticated MCAT course of them all. WikiPremed is the only course that teaches science in the fully unified way that the new MCAT calls for you to understand.

Why doesn't WikiPremed charge at least some tuition? We believe an essential part of being the best MCAT course is to be completely open, not only to reduce economic barriers to becoming a doctor, but also to make our work accessible to the premedical education community. Our learning program demonstrates how to teach a unified, undergraduate science curriculum. We hope this will make the world a little better.
