Timeline & Curriculum

Challenging Courses

Postbac MEDPREP is an 8 to 14-month program that begins every May and ends the following Spring semester.

Our curriculum is specially designed for exceptional post-baccalaureate students with little or no science background who are preparing to apply to medical school. The program emphasizes foundational scientific material essential to all aspiring physicians (biology, physics, chemistry, physiology, and biochemistry), and includes MCAT preparation, and interaction with medical school faculty in our “Foundations for Aspiring Physicians” course.

Individual curriculum plans will be designed to meet the specific course needs of each student, but here’s what your MEDPREP path could look like on a 14-month schedule:
