Post Baccalaureate Premedical Program

This program is designed as an academic bridge for students who have completed a bachelor's degree and who intend to pursue a degree in the medical sciences including but not limited to: MD, DO, PhD, OD, DMD, DVM, DC, MA, and MS.

We offer the opportunity to take pre-requisite and advanced coursework as a specialized second bachelor's degree, the BMS, Bachelor of Medical Science.

Dominican's Post-Baccalaureate Premedical Program is appropriate both for students who have never before taken introductory natural science courses (career-changers) and for students who need to improve their grades in the science pre-requisites before applying to a professional program (career enhancers).

Admission Requirements

Bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution with a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.00 is requested.  

No MCAT scores, please.  We do not consider MCAT scores for our program.

We expect that students' MCAT scores do not represent their full potential and prefer to have them take the MCAT closer to the opening of the application cycle; after they have had the benefit of further coursework and MCAT studying.
