Post-Baccalaureate Pre-Health Program

The Post-Baccalaureate Pre-Health Program is intended for students who have received a bachelors but still need to take the necessary coursework to prepare for careers in medicine, dentistry, or other health-related fields. Students enroll in the appropriate undergraduate courses with non-matriculating Graduate Student (GSP) status. The undergraduate coursework, coupled with the advisement resources of the Academic and Pre-Professional Advising Center, will help to prepare students for the application process to graduate health programs. Accepted students will participate in a special orientation and may partake in post-baccalaureate focused events and programs. 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 post-baccalaureate 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. More information can be found by visiting
