Should I Create My Own Post Baccalaureate Premedical Program?

Not one size fits all.

Should I create my own post baccalaureate premedical program?

Should I enroll in a formal post baccalaureate program or should I create my own premedical postgraduate studies?

Dr. Jessica Freedman answers.

Keep in mind:

Both of these options work and can help you gain admission to medical school.

For example:

Some people prefer formal programs. This may be an easier way to go because everything is set up for you.

But, you should know:

This is not the the best option for everyone.

This could be the more expensive way to go.

But there’s a good alternative.

We have had students created their own post baccalaureate premedical program.

How did they do this?

They found a four year university that offered all of the premedical prerequisites. While in this phase of their education, they were able to perform well academically.

So:

These examples demonstrate that if you’re in a formal program, doesn’t mean you’ll increase your chances of getting into medical school.

Remember,

For some students they need that structure of a formal program.

Again,

If you’re that kind of person, that structure may help you. In which case, that might be the better choice.

But:

If you’re a do-it-yourselfer, then put it together yourself and stick with one university to map out your curriculum.

The bottom line:

I don’t know of a single program that gives you an advantage to gain admission to medical school.
