Information for Prospective Post-baccalaureate Students

Post-baccalaureate students may take coursework at Stony Brook University to prepare for careers in medicine, dentistry, or other health-related fields. Under-prepared students (those who lack requisite math and science courses) may make up course deficiencies by enrolling in the appropriate undergraduate courses with Non-matriculating Graduate Student (GSP) status through The School of Professional Development. The undergraduate coursework, coupled with the advisement resources of the Pre-Professional Advising office will help to prepare you for the application process to the health profession of your choice.

Students accepted into this program will participate in a special orientation program organized jointly by the Pre-Professional Advising office and Student Orientation office. This select student group will be academically advised and tracked throughout their time at Stony Brook by the pre-professional advising staff. Stony Brook may nominate up to five eligible postbaccalaureate students per year for linkage (a special fast track admission) to Stony Brook’s School of Medicine. All students admitted to the program are expected to maintain a 3.0 cumulative grade point average.

The Post-Baccalaureate Pre-Health Program (PBPH) has limited admissions, therefore the submission of an application package does not guarantee admission to the program. Please click here more details and application.
