The Post-Baccalaureate in Pre-Health Studies Certificate Program is not accepting applications until further notice.

The post baccalaureate pre-health studies certificate program is designed for college graduates who wish to prepare for graduate study in a health care profession but who did not take the required science courses as part of their undergraduate program.

The certificate program provides the pre-requisite courses required by the majority of health care professional programs, including, but not limited to dental, medical, pharmacy and veterinary schools; graduate entry nursing programs; physician assistant programs; and physical therapy programs.

Students will work closely with a health studies advisor to develop an individualized program of study to meet their goals.

Note: This program is not designed for students who graduated from a pre-health studies undergraduate program who seek to repeat pre-requisite courses in order to improve their academic records.

Advisors: Dr. Aline Davis (Biology) and Dr. Louise Bodack (Chemistry)
