Post-Baccalaureate Program in Pre-Medicine

Post-Baccalaureate Program in Pre-Medicine



Certificate in Pre-Medicine Curriculum (24 credits)
The core curriculum represents a logical sequence of science courses necessary for application to medical and other schools of advanced health studies. Nevertheless, the certificate program is flexible and tailored to suit each student's specific goals and background.

Individuals taking all of the basic science courses will usually spend two academic years (four semesters) completing the program. For those taking fewer courses, less time may be required.

Post-Baccalaureate candidates may elect to take only the courses they require to achieve their goal; however, a Certificate of Completion will be awarded only to those students completing a minimum of 24 credits and achieving a cumulative G.P.A. of 3.2 or above.
