About our Post-Bacc Programs

Pre-Medical Programs

The Pre-Medical Certificate program is for the career-changer who excelled in their academic programs and requires the necessary core science classes to apply to medical school. This 12-month, full-time cohort program is designed for students who took little to none of the core science requirements.

The Pre-Medical Flex program is a cohort program designed with flexibility in mind, with a 12-month full-time cohort and a 24-month part-time cohort. Ideal for students who need select pre-medical courses or who seek to improve their academic record to become competitive applicants for medical, dental, or veterinary school.

Pre-Medical Linkages

Agnes Scott’s post-bacc pre-medical students can reach their goal of becoming a physician a year earlier, avoiding the "glide year," through our linkage programs with Mercer University School of Medicine (MUSM) and Morehouse School of Medicine (MSM). Students enrolled in full-time and meet specific qualifications can apply for one of these lucrative linkage opportunities.

Pre-Allied Health

The Pre-Allied Health program offers a 12-month or 24-month cohort program designed for students who want to develop a career in professional allied health fields, such as physician assistant, pharmacy, physical therapy, and more. Pre-allied health students will complete the necessary sciences, with a clinical practicum experience. The program is designed for career changers and those looking to improve their academic credentials to become competitive applicants for health professions programs.
