The 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.
