» Pre-Health Post-Baccalaureate Program

The post-baccalaureate program at Chapman University is recognized by the Association of American Medical Colleges. It is designed for students who already possess a bachelor’s degree in an unrelated field of science, who now desire to change their career path toward a healthcare profession.

The program offers the student an opportunity to take various courses required for: 

  • Medical School
  • Dental School
  • Veterinary School
  • Pharmacy School
  • Physical Therapy Program
  • Occupational Therapy Program
  • Physician Assistant Program
  • Nurse Practitioner Program

The program is not intended for those seeking to improve their G.P.A. by repeating courses.

The priority application deadline for fall 2020 is February 15, 2020. Applications submitted after the priority deadline will be reviewed on a space-available basis.

Prior to registration for fall classes, admitted students are required to meet with the Program Director, Dr. Kenneth Sumida, to plan out the courses to be taken depending upon the Pre-Health profession chosen by the student.
