The following change in Baylor College of Medicine’s pre-clinical curriculum has been brought to my attention: “All preclinical courses will be Pass/Fail (afternoon and morning)” beginning with my incoming class.
As a student affected by this change, I’m really looking forward to it! UT Southwestern will be making a similar change for their incoming freshman class, but pass/fail will not be the standard for all their pre-clinical courses. Yeah, there are advantages and disadvantages, but hopefully this move will reduce some of the “gunnery” inherent to medical school. As time goes on, I’m beginning to love Baylor Med more and more. 🙂
