Program Overview

The mission of UConn's Pre-Medical and Health Professions Post-Baccalaureate Program is to prepare students who have completed an undergraduate degree and wish to strengthen their preparation for professional school in the health professions. The program offers two tracks, tailored toward students' academic backgrounds and prior coursework, and is a small, highly selective certificate program.

While completion of UConn's Post-Baccalaureate Program does not guarantee admission to professional school, the undergraduate campus—together with the University’s Schools of Medicine and Dental Medicine—view the program as a superb opportunity to enrich and diversify our student populations at both the University’s professional schools and other institutions' health professions programs.

Applications for the Fall 2023 admissions cycle will be available beginning on January 1, 2023 and will be evaluated on a rolling basis through May 1, 2023. Priority consideration is given to applications that are completed early in the cycle; therefore, applicants are encouraged to submit all required elements of their application as soon as possible.
