Post-Baccalaureate Students

If you hold a bachelor's degree from an accredited institution, you may be eligible for one of Dominican's post-baccalaureate programs.

Pre Medical Studies Program

This program is designed as an academic bridge for students who have completed a bachelor's degree and who intend to pursue a degree in the medical sciences including but not limited to: MD, Ph.D, DO, OD, DMD, DC, MA, and MS.

We offer the opportunity to take pre-requisite and advanced coursework as well as a specialized second bachelor's degree, the BMS, Bachelors of Medical Science.

DU's Post-Baccalaureate Pre-Medical Studies Program is appropriate both for students who have never before taken introductory natural science courses (career-changers) and for students who need to improve their grades in the science pre-requisites before applying to a professional program.
