Dominican University’s Post-Baccalaureate Medical Studies program (PBMS) leads to the Bachelor of Medical Science (BMS) degree. It is an academic bridge for students who have already completed a bachelor’s degree at an accredited college or university and who intend to pursue a degree in the medical or allied health professions. The program consists of a minimum of 34 credit hours to be completed in residence and provides the opportunity to take prerequisite and/or advanced science courses, depending upon the needs of the student. Research, clinical,and volunteer opportunities are also available. The curriculum is customized to each student’s goals through close, ongoing advising, which also includes application assistance, standardized test preparation, and letters of recommendation.  
 
Following program completion, the student will have earned a second bachelor’s degree, the Bachelor of Medical Science (BMS). This degree is suitable for students preparing for any doctoral or master’s level graduate program within the health professions.


In addition to all pre-requisite courses offered through the Rosary College of Arts and Science, there are several BMS courses offered primarily to students in the PBMS program. Four courses totaling 10 credit hours are required for BMS degree completion and contribute toward the 34 in-residence hours.
