What's New

The UCSF School of Medicine Post Baccalaureate Program is now in its 19th year. Ninety-four percent of the students in our program who apply to medical school have matriculated into a U.S. allopathic or osteopathic medical school. A number of others have earned degrees in public health or other allied health professions. In 2011, our program received graduate certificate status, and is now part of the UCSF Interprofessional Health Post Baccalaureate Program that includes programs from the Schools of Dentistry, Medicine, and Pharmacy. This year our program is host to 15 students who hail from different regions of California. 

Welcome, Class of 2018!
