Access to the Post-Bac Premedical Community Hub (or just the Hub)

The UVM Post-Bac PreMedical Community Hub is your online resource to access academic, professional, and personal support to complement your courses and Post-Bac experience. The Hub is an educational space where you will receive important information regarding your program, connect with current and former students, communicate with advisors and Post-Bac peer mentors, and receive up-to-date academic support to help guide you through your program and professional pathways. It is also a space where you can create personal and professional networks.

Post-Bac Pre-Medical Peer Ambassadors

Post-Bac Pre-Med Peer Ambassadors play an essential role on the Hub and the program by bridging the social gap and connecting students with opportunities and lessons-learned from their experiences in the pre-health program.  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 PBPM experience.  They share information regarding events, study opportunities, and general resources to build connections and community on the Hub.
