Medical School Linkage Agreements

One of the many benefits of attending the University of Vermont for your Post-Baccalaureate Premedical education is that you can take advantage of linkage agreements when it comes time to apply to medical school. Linkage agreements are contracts between the University of Vermont and other medical school programs that provide students in the Post-Baccalaureate Premedical Program with a supportive and often expedited pathway for admissions into those institutions.

As a UVM Post-Bacc Premed student, you are guaranteed an interview with schools on our linkage agreement list, provided you meet the professional school guidelines and have a certain GPA in your Post-Bacc program. You’ll work closely with your advisor to help assess your qualifications for the linked medical programs and determine the best time to apply.

While many of our students choose to take advantage of linkage agreements, we also have a large number of students who apply to medical schools that are not on our linkage agreement list. We’ll support you through your application process and guide you in making the medical school decision that best aligns with your educational and professional goals.
