Program of Study / Home

The curriculum for the Pre-Health Careers Post-Baccalaureate Certificate consists of two distinct tracks. The first is a pre-health careers preparation track designed for students who have a baccalaureate degree but do not have the prerequisite coursework for admission to medical school or other healthcare educational programs. The second track is an enhancement track. This is designed for the student who has unsuccessfully applied to medical school and needs academic enhancement for his or her application. Both tracks begin in the summer semester.
