Post-Baccalaureate Pre-Health Admissions

The Post-Baccalaureate Pre-Health Program (PBPH) has limited admissions, therefore the submission of an application package does not guarantee admission to the program.

For admission to graduate study, the following are required:

  1. Personal statement. (In 750-1000 words, describe how this program connects with your career goals).
  2. Resume.
  3. Official transcripts indicating conferral of a bachelor's (or master's) degree from  ALL post-secondary schools attended. Competitive applicants normally present a minimum 3.3 cumulative grade point average.
  4. In those cases where the PBPH admissions committee deems it desirable, personal interviews with PBPH representatives may be requested

Letters of recommendation and any other supporting documentation is optional,  however they may be submitted at the discretion of the applicant.
