About the Program
Our new accelerated post-baccalaureate health preparations certificate (PBHPC) program will allow college graduates with degrees in fields outside of the sciences to complete the academic prerequisites for admission to most medical schools in less than 18 months. Additionally, the program will provide an array of individualized services, including assistance in clinical and research experience placement, and guidance through the medical school application process. You will take two courses per session in classes that are small and exclusive to postbac program students only. We will offer tutoring and MCAT prep classes to help keep you on track and boost your success. Please note that at this time we will only review applications from students who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents and who have received a Bachelor's degree from an accredited U.S. or Canadian institution.
