Post-Baccalaureate Certificate

Larry-Johnson-235x300.jpgThe Post-Bac Certificate in Pre-Medical Studies provides returning students with a structure for pursuing the courses required for admission into medical schools and other health professions’ graduate programs.

The certificate provides a holistic approach in preparing the student academically through a combination of courses including both the natural and behavioral sciences and in multicultural competency. The certificate promotes a better understanding of how healthcare is impacted by social, educational, familial, racial, and gender dynamics.

Wright State’s Pre-Health Program offers the highly motivated, mature, and service-oriented the opportunity to study the sciences and prepare for entrance into competitive medical schools and other professional programs through two paths of study; 1) “Career changers” who need two years of core studies in the sciences and 2) those who already possess a scientific background but seek to “enhance” their academic credentials on more advanced topics in the biomedical sciences.

Special Program Features include:

  • Personalized, one-on-one advising and support
  • Customized program of study to meet requirements of specific health professional schools
  • Volunteer and research opportunities
  • Federal Financial Aid available to those who qualify
  • Comprehensive letter of recommendation written by the Director of Pre-Health Program for those who complete the program
  • Certificate of Completion awarded with successful completion of the program
  • The program ideally is pursued on a full-time basis, but part-time is acceptable

A minimum GPA of 3.0 is required for admission into the program. Financial Aid Eligibility is determined by each student’s individual financial aid profile. Students are encouraged to contact the Financial Aid office for more information regarding loans available to them.
