Our Purpose

The first step to become a physician is going to medical school. Medical schools have limited class sizes available each year which makes admission very competitive. Admission committees are seeking competitive applicants who have completed their pre-med requirements; are academically strong; have scored well on the MCAT; have had clinical exposure (shadowing); are well rounded; have illustrated a sincere compassion for others through volunteer service; make a great impression during their interview; have solid letters of recommendation and have a genuine interest in medicine.  There is a lot involved in preparing for and applying to medical school. Many students get discouraged or lost in the shuffle without the professional guidance to help them navigate through the preparation process.

The University of Louisville School of Medicine and the College of Arts and Sciences established this program for career changers interested in going to medical school. This program is designed specifically for career changers with a bachelor's degree who want to go to medical school but haven't fulfilled the pre-med requirements for medical school admission.  Please note: This is not a record enhancing program in order to retake course work to increase your science GPA. There are numerous record enhancing programs available, please refer to www.aamc.org for a listing of programs or consider the non-thesis M.S. in Physiology Pre-Health Care Track Program at the University of Louisville.

Our program serves as a supportive navigation system for its students throughout their pre-med journey!
