Post-Baccalaureate Premed Program
It's never too late to decide you want to be a doctor—even if you didn't take the right courses in college.
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.
Our application process for the 2019-2020 cycle is with a nation-wide Common Application (PostBacCAS). The 'Application and Admission' link has further information.
For the class beginning June 2019, the PostBacCAS application portal opened August 15, 2018. Candidates are accepted on a rolling admissions basis. Beginning in mid-August, applications are processed as they are received for the next class, which begins in June. NOTE: We will close our admissions process to new applications on Monday, March 4, 2019. All applications submitted to PostBacCAS prior to this will be considered as long as they are complete by noon on Friday, March 15, 2019, regardless of whether they are 'verified' yet.
