Prepare for success with Penn’s Pre-Health Programs

Penn’s Pre-Health Post-Baccalaureate Programs are designed for driven students, like you, who want to distinguish themselves as medical, dental, veterinary or nursing school candidates. We are at the heart of an internationally renowned research university, offering you access to one of the finest health systems in the world. The rigorous academic challenges of our programs assure you—and admissions committees—that you are equipped to thrive at your future professional school. Our Pre-Health Programs Director and expert advising team draw upon the full range of resources at Penn to guide you through the professional health school application process and provide unrivaled support for your future career.

The Pre-Health Core Studies program supplies students who have little scientific background with key concepts and the rigorous training necessary to succeed in the professional health school of their choice. The Pre-Health Specialized Studies program is for students who possess a background in the sciences, but who are seeking to bolster their academic credentials and extend their studies. Many of our students don't fit neatly into either track, and our experienced advising team can help you develop a personalized profile of classes.

Our combination of elite academics and expert advising has led to an outstanding placement rate for our students. As you would expect, they go on to attend many of the finest professional health schools in the country. We’re excited to talk to you about the unparalleled opportunities that await you in Penn’s Pre-Health Programs, and we’re available to answer any questions that may arise as you explore the programs at Penn.
