Student Testimonials

At the University of Vermont, each of our Post-Baccalaureate Premedical students has a unique story to tell.  What will your story be?

“The best part of my UVM Post-Baccalaureate Premedical Program experience was the sense of community with other Post-Bac students. I spent numerous hours in the library with fellow Post-Bacs’ who eventually became some of my best friends. The program also provided the structure and support that I needed to successfully complete my pre-med requirements including, regular check-ins with my advisors, patient care experiences, and Medical School interview practice.”

“The UVM Post-bacc faculty were completely dedicated to our success during the program and provided the extra attention and support to help me and my fellow Post-baccs get accepted into medical school.”

- Evan L. UVM Medical School, Class of 2021


“UVM’s Post-Baccalaureate Premedical Program is unparalleled because of the multitude of opportunities for research and patient care right on your doorstep. Having a hospital on campus is incredibly rare to find, and I was able to be a part of more patient care experiences because I could walk right to the hospital from any of my classes.”

“I recently was accepted to the UVM Larner College of Medicine after completing the Post-Baccalaureate Premedical Program at UVM. The courses I took through the program provided me with the knowledge I needed to prepare me for success on the MCAT and applying to medical school. I benefited from excellent professors and guidance from my advisor.”

“When comparing the UVM Post-Baccalaureate Pre-Vet program to other programs, UVM stood out. Living in Burlington was wonderful and I benefited from a small peer group, flexible schedule, supportive Faculty, and unique research projects.  I also was able to take advantage of the Summer CREAM program caring for Holstein cows on a working Farm.  I found the Animal Sciences Department to be a valuable resource.  I was recently accepted to Cornell University’s Doctor of Veterinary Medicine.”  

- Artemis S, 2016 Post-Baccalaureate Alumna (Pre-Vet)


“Anyone can do this. I am not particularly gifted but I put in the work to understand it. If you are committed and can take one bite at a time, recognize this is a decade-long journey and enjoy it.”

- Major Doug P, MD, 2012 Post-Baccalaureate Alumnus
