Curriculum

The Post-Baccalaureate Pre-Medical certificate requires a minimum of 32 credits. The courses below fulfill the minimum requirements for admission to most medical schools. Additional coursework will enhance the student’s preparation for the MCAT and admission into medical school and is strongly recommended. Additional coursework may include, but not limited to, a semester of shadowing a healthcare provider, semester of research, Sociology classes, Philosophy classes, additional Chemistry or Biology classes, etc. Some classes will have to be retaken if more than five years have passed since the courses were completed. Some medical schools have additional course requirements. Dental and veterinary schools have similar but not identical requirements. All students enrolled in the program must meet with the director prior to registering for classes to outline a specific course timeline that will best meet the student’s needs.

The student who completes at least 18 credits and maintains a minimum grade point average of 2.5 will be awarded a Certificate of Completion in Pre-Medical Studies.

The program is designed to be completed in 24 months. This is a sample course of study. This course of study allows for independent research as well as an internship.
