Understand the human mind and social relationships

with the complete online course to prep for the “Psychological, Social, and Biological Foundations of Behavior” MCAT section

The MCAT dedicates about a fourth of its questions to the psychological, social, and biological foundations of behavior. Since psychology integrates concepts from multiple disciplines, this can be a hard section to prepare for.

This course covers the core concepts of how humans sense and understand their environment that you need for the MCAT and medical school. You will learn the key topics of psychology including self-identity, social itneractions, social thinking, and social structures.

Tarry Ahuja, PhD, will guide you through the elements that shape the human mind and explain how that self functions within societal structures.

The combination of Video Lessons with interactive quiz questions, downloadable study materials, and a MCAT-style Qbank makes it easy to understand and retain the topics.

By the end of this course, you will have a solid grasp of the psychological, social, and biological foundations of behavior, setting up up for a high MCAT score and giving you a headstart in medical school.

FAQs

What is psychology?

Psychology is the branch of health science dedicated to the study of the functions of the human mind, with a special focus on factors that influence behavior.

What is sociology?

Sociology is the science that focuses on the study of social relationships and the human psyche.

What is the difference between sociology and psychology?

The main difference can be defined in terms of scope: Psychology focuses on the behavior and mental processes of the individual, while sociology is concerned with social structures and relationships in groups and society.

Why do we have to learn psychology and sociology for medical school?

Under the biopsychosocial model of disease, physicians can positively affect the psychological health of their patients, at the very least by providing the emotional support needed to overcome the psychological stress of being burdened with a disease. Physicians must also understand that all individuals are part of societal structures and that disease processes can hinder their ability to adequately fill their roles.

Who should take Lecturio's psychology and sociology course?

This course is geared toward premedical and medical students. It covers all the key points about how humans sense and understand their environment, and provides different learning modalities specifically useful to prepare for the MCAT, supplement medical school studies, and study efficiently for exams in medical school.
