Post-Baccalaureate Premedical Program

UVM’s Post Bac Premed Program 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.

If the thought of a healthcare profession has been a lingering one, UVM’s Post Baccalaureate Premedical program can take you one step closer to fulfilling your dream.

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

Our program provides the necessary resources and guidance to help you acquire the undergraduate science prerequisites.

Although the Post Bac Premed program is a rigorous one, it offers flexibility with the option of a one or two year program designed exclusively for your needs, previous experience and interests. And because our classes are rigorous, our students emerge well prepared for professional programs.

We are here to help you reach your goal.

  • Individualized programs for every Post Bac Premed student
  • Our main campus features UVM’s top-ranked Medical School* and a Level-I Trauma center at the Fletcher Allen Healthcare Facility
  • Close-knit group of students
  • Learn by doing: research and volunteer opportunities
  • 90% acceptance rate

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.
