IMPORTANT NOTES regarding preclinical subjects (HST.011-HST.185 and HST.191):
Students not enrolled in an HST degree program may take preclinical subjects if space is available. Non-HST students are limited to one HST preclinical course and must provide justification for enrolling in this course. They must obtain permission from the course director and the Associate Master of HST at HMS. Special students are not permitted to enroll in preclinical subjects.
