*All courses in the PBPM program must be taken for a letter grade:  P/F and Audit options are not possible for any course in the program.  PBPM students may not take any other courses at ASC outside of the PBPM courses, or remain on campus to take courses once their cohort is complete.  A minimum of 5 courses from our program must be taken for a post-bacc to be considered for a medical school committee letter from our office.  Committee letters are prepared for students for up to two years after completion of our program only.
