Post-Baccalaureate Pre-Med Program

Post-Baccalaureate Pre-Med Program

A pre-med preparation program specifically designed for career changers with a bachelor's degree who desire to become a physician, but lack the pre-med requirements and preparation to apply to medical school. This program is available for Kentucky and out of state residents.

The fall 2016 application cycle will begin December 1 - March 1, 2016.  The application materials will post on Monday November 30, 2015.  Our next information session is Sat., Dec. 5 @ 12:30 p.m. EST. and Mon. Dec. 7 @ 5:30 p.m. in the Ekstrom Library, room 254.  Click here for more details. 

Our program continues to grow and evolve with each passing year.  We have been successful in matriculating the majority of our students to medical school; not only at the University of Louisville School of Medicine,but medical schools throughout the United States and abroad.  We currently have an 80% matriculation rate which includes some re-applicants.  But whether it takes one attempt or more than one, our students still get the guidance, support and encouragement they need to persevere.  This year our first set of alumni graduated from medical school; two from the University of Louisville School of Medicine and one from St. George's University School of Medicine!  Our program takes its mission seriously by investing time, attention, resources and support to facilitate our students' success in becoming the physician they always wanted to be.  Learn more about our program and how to be a competitive applicant for our fall 2016 application cycle. Our program can help you prepare for medical school!
