Post-Bac Options

There are two types of post baccalaureate (postbac) programs:

  • "Career Changing" Programs: for people who need to meet the requirements to apply for medical school.
  • "Record Enhancing Programs": for people who want to enhance their academic record to be more competitive and gain a better grounding in the sciences.

For more information about types of programs visit the National Association for Health Professions Advisers Post-Bac Options page.
