This full-time program is designed for U.S. citizens or permanent residents who have not taken the courses required for admission to medical and other health professional schools (or who have taken a full year of both General Chemistry and Biology with lab for the Finisher Track). Students accepted to the Finisher Track will typically have grades in Chemistry and Biology of 3.3 or higher. Please note that international students (non-U.S. citizens and non-permanent residents) are not eligible to apply to this program.

If a student does not already have a year of college math, we strongly recommend, prior to enrollment, one semester of calculus and one semester of statistics. At Brandeis, these courses would be Math 10a (Methods and Techniques of Calculus) and one of the following courses: Biology 51a (Biostatistics), Psychology 51a (Psychology Statistics), Math 8a (Introduction to Probability and Statistics), or equivalent.
