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?


“I want to thank you again for everything you have done for me to help me get here. From your thoughtful advisement throughout my time in UVM’s post-bacc program (and also your trust in me when I forged my own way with physics) to your integral letter of recommendation for my application, you have played a vital and immeasurable role in my path to the veterinary profession. I cannot express my gratitude enough.”

“The post-bac program has provided me with the ability to complete my courses quickly and efficiently along with the opportunity to work and acquire patient care experience in UVM medical center’s operating rooms. The numerous linkage agreements provide alumna with a competitive advantage by guaranteeing interviews for those who excel in the program. “

“Advising was always accessible and helpful during the post-bacc program. Advising assisted me with everything from course planning and engagement in extracurricular activities to navigating the entire application process. I feel very prepared and confident with my medical school applications thanks to the valuable support from Jen and Trish.”

“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.”

- Christina S., 2017 Post-Baccalaureate Graduate


“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.”
