Metropolitan University College of Medicine provides a 90-credit PM program.

MUCM’s PM program not only fulfills all the minimum requirements for joining an MD program (courses like physics, mathematics, inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry, English, and general biology) but also provides our students with the sound foundational knowledge needed to excel in the MD courses.
