Post-Baccalaureate Premedical Program

The Post-Baccalaureate Premedical (PBPM) program at Washington University enables qualified college graduates to take prerequisites and elective science and math courses to satisfy medical school admission requirements. Students also may take approved elective courses in the natural sciences, social sciences, and humanities that provide a broad context and skill set for the practice of medicine today. The program is flexible to accommodate individuals changing careers, including those without a science background. For students who enter the program with most premedical course requirements complete, the program offers numerous upper-level biology courses to enhance a previous academic record and demonstrate science mastery. Courses are typically taken during the evening and are available during the fall, spring, and summer semesters. Day courses are also available to students, although tuition rates are higher.

Students earning 24 units of course credit at Washington University with a cumulative grade point average of 3.2 or higher will receive a letter of completion of the Post-Baccalaureate Premedical program. 

Students are also supported and guided in preparing their professional school application by a dedicated advisor. Qualified students receive a cover letter of support from the program to accompany their letters of recommendation to professional school.
