Post-Baccalaureate Health Professions Courses
Students gain a solid foundation in the necessary science classes required for most medical school applications and the subjects most heavily featured on the MCAT.
Students in the Post-Baccalaureate Health Professions program are required to take the entire core curriculum. Substituting other courses is not an option. The only prerequisite for the program is precalculus (algebra and trigonometry), although Introduction to Chemistry is also highly recommend.
All students in the program take the following courses:
- General Chemistry 1 with Lab
- General Chemistry 2 with Lab
- Introduction to Cellular and Molecular Biology
- Organic Chemistry 1 with Lab
- General Physics 1 with Lab
- Principles of Genetics with Lab
- Principles of Biochemistry
- General Physics 2 with Lab
Students must maintain a 3.3 GPA; courses cannot be taken for pass/fail or no credit.
Many students may take additional courses in subsequent semesters to meet the specific requirements of programs to which they plan to apply. Additional courses may also be added (in the fall and spring terms only) on a case-by-case basis.
