Courses for Post-Baccalaureate Health Professions
As a Post-Baccalaureate student, you will gain a solid foundation in the necessary science classes required for most medical school applications and the subjects heavily featured on the MCAT.
Students in each cohort are required to take the entire core curriculum. Substituting courses is not an option. If you are preparing to apply to professional schools that require additional courses, our advisors can help you understand how best to complete those additional courses after you have completed our program or on a case-by-case basis.
Prerequisites for the program include:
- Pre-calculus (algebra and trigonometry) taken within two years of the start of the program with a B or better.
- An online, preparatory general chemistry course. All admitted students must take this course—provided at no additional cost to you by the program—prior to the start of summer term.
Required Core Curriculum:
- General Chemistry 1 with Lab
- General Chemistry 2 with Lab
Fall (13 Credits) $6,125
- Introduction to Cellular and Molecular Biology
- Organic Chemistry 1 with Lab
- General Physics 1 with Lab
Spring (13 Credits) $6,125
- Principles of Genetics
- Biology laboratory course (equivalent to a full-year biology laboratory sequence)
- Principles of Biochemistry
- General Physics 2 with Lab
Students must complete the summer general chemistry sequence with grades of B or better to continue in the program. A GPA of 3.5 or higher is needed for enrollment in spring courses in order to be a competitive medical school applicant in most situations. Courses cannot be taken for pass/fail or no credit.
