Statistics Requirement for 2012 Admission
For 2012 admission, the University of North Texas Health Science Center-Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine (UNTHSC-TCOM) will require 3 semester credit hours of statistics for admission into the Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine program. We will no longer accept calculus to meet our mathematics requirement. Below is the specific language for this requirement:
The statistics requirement may be met with a 3 semester credit (or equivalent quarter hours of credit) course from a regionally-accredited college or university in any academic discipline. The course content should include descriptive statistics, hypothesis testing, sampling techniques, measures of relationship, regression models and other tests for significance. This course must be completed prior to matriculation.
Applicants may be required to provide documentation to verify course content.
Please note applicants may go through the admissions process and receive an offer of admission without having fulfilled this requirement. However, they will be required to complete all prerequisites prior to matriculation in July, 2012.
