Continued Preparation After Graduation: Post-Baccalaurate Programs

In some cases, students are interested in pursuing a health professions career, but did not perform to their full potential while at Brandeis.  Post-baccalaureate (post-bac) programs help by providing additional advanced science coursework.

A few important things to note about such “record enhancer” programs:

  • They are usually one or two years long
  • Some involve earning a master’s degree
  • Programs usually include taking advanced science courses either in the medical school or through a graduate school within a university.
  • Typically, students in this type of program have taken all of their prerequisite courses and have undergraduate GPAs near or above 3.0 overall and in the sciences.

To search for programs, visit the AAMC’s database.

Students who wish to talk about their options should schedule an appointment to talk with a Pre-Health Advisor.
