Post-Baccalaureate Pre-Medical Certificate Hybrid Program Overview Drexel University's part-time, two year pre-medical certificate program is designed for those with non-science undergraduate degrees who wish to pursue a career in the health professions.Changing careers is often a difficult decision. This unique program will help you transition by providing the opportunity to remain in your current position while fulfilling the pre‑requisite undergraduate science courses needed for admission into most medical, dental, physician assistant, veterinary, or other health professional schools.Taken over a two year period, the pre-medical certificate program is designed to help you develop a strong foundational understanding of these science topics that will be built upon in future course work in health professional schools. Students who have recently graduated with a bachelor’s degree will also benefit from this program. Applications to health professional schools include sections that demonstrate community service and volunteerism. Some students utilize their time in our program to fulfill these requirements and improve their applications to healthcare programs.Program FeaturesTaught by the distinguished Drexel College of Medicine faculty Evening and online classes that minimize career interruptionFree MCAT preparation course during your last semesterState restrictions may apply to some programs.
