IMPORTANT NOTES regarding preclinical subjects (HST.011-HST.185 and HST.191):

Students not enrolled in an HST graduate degree program are limited to two HST preclinical courses and must provide justification for enrolling in these courses.  This action must be approved by the course director and the student’s advisor.

These subjects are scheduled according to the Harvard Medical School academic calendar, which differs from the MIT calendar. Students whose graduation depends upon completing one or more of these subjects should take particular care regarding the schedule.
