Pre-Allied Health Program

Our Post-Baccalaureate Pre-Allied Health program provides students with a strong foundation in the science classes necessary to apply for a health professions degree program for a career as a physician assistant, pharmacist, physical therapist, and more. The rigor of our program, including a clinical practicum, and Health Professions Advising support prepares students to further their education in a health professions field.

Our 12-month programs consist of 36 credit hours over three semesters (June-May) and a complementary, cohort-exclusive MCAT* prep course during the spring semester, offered by the Princeton Review.

Students in these programs attend classes full-time during the day, to provide them with the rigorous academic study needed to prepare for medical school.

*Students can opt for a DAT prep, GRE or related exam prep course instead, based on the requirement of their health professions field of choice.
