Bioethics for Premed Students
Premedical students face many bioethical issues, including shadowing physicians, working in labs, and taking the Multiple Mini-Interviews (MMIs) many medical schools now use. The Columbia University Master of Science in Bioethics program is pleased to provide this page of resources to help premed students address these complex issues.

Here are three free resources to aid students in the MMI:
