Minimum requirements for admission to most medical and allied health professional schools include basic science courses in biology, chemistry, and physics. Basic science courses in the program are a semester long and consist of both a lecture and laboratory section. However, admission requirements vary among schools and specific programs. To ensure that students take the appropriate courses, they are advised to contact schools of interest prior to enrolling in the Post-Baccalaureate Pre-Health program.
We offer elective courses which are not required for the Post-Baccalaureate Pre-Medical program, but that may be required for particular medical or allied health professional schools. In addition, these classes may be of interest to students who want to further their own educational interests. Many of these courses may be taken after specific entrance exams.
Since science course requirements vary for medical and health professional schools, students are encouraged to meet with a program advisor to discuss which courses should supplement the minimum requirements.
