Access to the Post-Bacc Pre-Medical Community Hub

The UVM Post-Bacc Pre-Medical Community Hub is your online community resource to access academic, professional, and personal support to complement your Post-Bacc experience. The Hub is a shared resource where you will:

  • Receive important information and updates regarding your program
  • Receive information about direct patient care and research opportunities, the Committee Letter process, useful study tips/timelines, and community events
  • Connect with current and former students
  • Communicate with advisors and Post-Bacc peer mentors

Post-Bacc Pre-Medical Peer Ambassadors

Peer Ambassadors bridge the social gap and connect students with opportunities and share lessons-learned from their Post-Bacc experiences. Peer Ambassadors host drop-in hours and study groups for interest areas, such as MCAT, CLP, time management skills, and general Q&A about the Post-Bacc experience.
