    Hi all,

    I'm taking a public health course this quarter, and i'm wondering where that would fall for AMCAS. The course description doesn't really make me think it is a science course. Its pretty an upper division course about physician's responsibilities, obligations, roles and professional activities of various health care disciplines in the community; provides students with perspectives on preventive medicine in society.

    Would this be a humanities course? I know its not an art course..hehe. But i don't think it is a science course. Who knows. Would be cool if it wasn't a science course though. Anyone have any thoughts?

    Thanks!

    social science/humanities type class...

    there are some PH classes that are hard sciences but this isnt one of them.

    you can put epi and biostats courses in the bcpm section, but the management/organization/health ed classes are better classified under social science/hum.

    i did this.


    almost all of them are social-science courses. Some are hardcore science, but i was an infectious disease student so obviously some of my classes had to be hardcore science (bacteriology, virology, immunology)
