Post Baccalaureate Pre-Med Certificate

This certificate program provides the necessary prerequisite courses to be considered for admission into the Masters of Biomedical Sciences program for a student whose bachelor’s degree (B.A. or B.S.) is in a field outside the pre-medical sciences (e.g., pre-law, business, psychology, etc.). The curriculum is based on admission requirements set by US medical and dental schools. Credit for courses from other institutions may be granted for courses taken in the past five years with a grade of C or above. Grades of C2 or below are not acceptable. Admission into the Master of Science program in Biomedical Sciences is competitive and is therefore not guaranteed. Students admitted to the certificate program must complete the following undergraduate requirements with a minimum grade of C to be eligible for admission into the Masters of Biomedical Sciences program:
