If you have the commitment, motivation, and desire to become a doctor, but lack the undergraduate science prerequisites for medical school, the Post-Baccalaureate Premedical Program at Goucher College is the place for you.
You will learn alongside people like you, in small classes focused on the distinctive needs of post-baccalaureate premedical students. You will receive close, personal attention and guidance from your professors, tutors, and advisors. You will be encouraged to take advantage of the many opportunities for practical experience available in the Baltimore area and the linkages Goucher has developed with prominent medical schools. And in one year, you will earn a certificate by completing the courses necessary to pursue a career in medicine.
Goucher’s Post-Baccalaureate Premedical Program is one of the oldest and best in the nation.
We’ve been developing and refining it for more than 30 years. It’s built upon Goucher’s long tradition of rigorous undergraduate science education—and the expertise of Goucher’s outstanding faculty—providing you with an intensive premedical education so thorough and strong that, in the last fifteen years, 99.5 percent of our graduates have been accepted into U.S. medical schools. We’re also very proud that over the past three years, medical schools have awarded more than $6 million in merit scholarships to 38 Goucher post-bacs.
Supportive, rigorous, and challenging, the Goucher Post-Baccalaureate Premedical Program provides the best preparation for men and women dedicated to changing their lives—and touching the lives of others—by pursuing a career in medicine.
The Goucher post-bac program is open to men and women who have completed a bachelor’s degree at an accredited college or university and have a strong academic record but lack the majority of science courses needed for admission to medical school. We strongly recommend that applicants have experience in mathematics at least through the pre-calculus level, as well as some experience in medical settings through volunteer or other work. Applicants are evaluated based on their previous academic record, standardized test scores (SAT, ACT, or GRE), motivation, experience in medicine, and personal qualities. Candidates are accepted on a rolling admissions basis. Beginning in the fall, applications are processed as they are received for the next class, which begins in June. There is no specific deadline, although the preferred financial aid deadline is February 15. To ensure full consideration and to expedite the financial aid process, submit your application as early as possible. Competitive applicants will be interviewed after we have received all of their application materials.
