Post-Baccalaureate Premedical Program

UVM’s Post-Baccalaureate Premedical Program is a robust, flexible program with the option of a one- or two-year program designed exclusively for your needs, previous experience and interests. Because our classes are rigorous, our students emerge well prepared for professional programs. Our 24-credit program can be completed in 12 months.

Established in 1995, the Post-Baccalaureate Premedical Program program has successfully helped students like you pursue medical, dental, veterinary, pharmacy, physician assistant, nurse practitioner, physical therapy and other health professions.

The Post-Baccalaureate Premedical Program offers two tracks:

Preparatory Science Track

The Preparatory Science Track is open to anyone who has completed a bachelor’s degree with a strong academic record, but lacks the core science courses needed for admission to medical school. The recommended CGPA for the Post-Baccalaureate Preparatory Science Track is 3.2 or higher.

Advanced Science Track

The Advanced Science Track is open to anyone interested in strengthening their academic credentials and accessing higher level courses to help make them a more successful applicant to medical and health professional school. The recommended CGPA for the Post-Baccalaureate Premedical Advanced Science Track is 3.0 or higher.

Learn about our new Linkage Agreements

UVM’s Post Baccalaureate Premedical Program offers linkage agreements to enhance the professional school admissions process for our students.

What can linkages do for you?

Linkage agreements are like insurance policies that provide admissions support. They are written as contracts between institutions. Students benefit by knowing in advance what they can expect if they meet the criteria of an institution with whom UVM has a linkage agreement.
