Penn's Pre-Health Programs

Penn's Pre-Health Programs offer customized curricula

At the University of Pennsylvania's Pre-Health Post-Baccalaureate Programs, we provide flexible and dynamic courses, research experiences and clinical opportunities for students preparing for their professional health careers. 

Programs include:
  • Core Studies: Foundational academics for students with a limited science background 
  • Specialized Studies: Tailored coursework for students who possess a significant background in the sciences
Many of our students don't fit neatly into the typical sets of courses in either track, and we work with them to craft a full profile of classes needed for a successful medical, dental, veterinary or nursing school application.
 
We also offer a breadth of support services, including committee letter writing, application material management, peer interest groups and personal advising. Our individualized support has led to an outstanding placement rate for our students.
