The Post-Baccalaureate Certificate of Completion in Biomedical Sciences and Health Equity is a one-year program aimed at developing and enriching the academic knowledge base and skills of students prior to their entrance into medical and health professions school. The program is designed to enhance the academic preparedness of individuals from STEM backgrounds by providing them with the necessary tools and knowledge required to develop their abilities for admissions into medical school and health care professional degree programs, or to enter the workforce. Upon completion of the program, the goal is for a student to successfully matriculate into a M.D. or D.O. program or other health professions graduate degree program at an accredited U.S. institution.
The official dates for the Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Biomedical Sciences and Health Equity program 2021 - 2022 are Aug. 2 through July 23. Orientation activities will take place during the month of July 2021. Be it on campus, virtual or hybrid, research experiences will begin as scheduled.
We welcome students from all science and math majors, and even non-science majors with appropriate pre-medical/health professions background and interest.
