Post-Baccalaureate Pre-Medical Studies Program

Dominican University’s Department of Biological Sciences offers a program designed as an academic bridge for students who have completed a bachelor’s degree at a regionally accredited college or university and who intend to pursue a degree in the medical sciences. We offer the opportunity to take pre-requisite and advanced course work as well as an opportunity for a specialized second bachelor’s degree, the Bachelor of Medical Science degree (BMS).

Dominican’s PBPMS program is appropriate both for students who have never before taken introductory biological science courses (career changers) and for students who need to improve their grades in the science prerequisites before applying to a professional program (career enhancers). We offer required courses at the undergraduate level as well as a number of exclusive post-bac pre-medical courses. The curriculum is customized to each student’s needs through close, ongoing advising. There are ample opportunities for a clinical preceptorship, research involvement, leadership, and volunteering. MCAT preparation courses and assistance with graduate school applications are part of the program.

A minimum of 34 credit hours in residence is required to complete the BMS degree.
