The Scripps Post-Baccalaureate Premedical Program offers motivated women and men the opportunity to complete the requisite science courses to successfully pursue a career in medicine in a thirteen-month program for career changers. Learning in small, collaborative classes alongside diverse and committed students, and benefiting from the personal attention and guidance of dedicated faculty and advisers, our students have earned an impressive acceptance rate into medical, dental, and veterinary schools of 98%. Located within the Claremont Colleges, the Scripps Post-Bac program is a respected leader in its field.
The Scripps Post-Bac Program places a strong emphasis on fostering a collaborative, diverse, and supportive environment for its students, and has established a set of values that encompasses this philosophy:
Our selective program provides a strong educational foundation in basic science prerequisites necessary for competitive admission to medical, dental or veterinary school. Successful applicants to the program have completed college but have never before applied to medical school nor taken the MCAT. Scripps Post-Bac students benefit from:
While we offer the option of a part-time, 24-month program, most of our students complete the full-time program in thirteen months—saving on tuition and living expenses and ensuring that course material is fresh in their minds when studying for the MCAT. Additionally, Scripps’ linkage programs offer qualified students the opportunity to matriculate into medical school immediately upon completion of the program, and about one-third of our students successfully link to one of our five linkage schools. Since the Scripps Post-Baccalaureate Premedical Program began in 1995, our graduates have been accepted into more than 40 different medical schools, eight dental schools, and three top veterinary schools.
