Note from the Faculty

While JABSOM students are encouraged and expected to explore and utilize a vast array of resources for their study, your lead faculty in the traditional biological sciences (“the basic sciences”) have recommended the following textbooks. You may choose to wait to purchase these books until your faculty have a chance to discuss their latest suggestions with you first. While you may choose to use other textbooks if you prefer, you should be sure to learn the material that coincides with any assigned readings in the recommended textbooks.
