Be a career changer

Transitioning to a career in medicine can be challenging without a well established background in science or clinical experience, but we are here to help prepare you to succeed in your journey to becoming a physician.

The Post-baccalaureate Premedical Program at the University of Michigan Medical School (Postbac MEDPREP) is an 8 to 14-month program designed to enable someone without a science background to prepare for medical school and a career as a physician.


Postbac MEDPREP includes science-intensive coursework, health care experiential learning opportunities, training and preparation for the MCAT exam, and comprehensive support throughout the medical school application process—all with the resources of the University of Michigan’s highly ranked Medical School at your disposal. In addition, students have access to the entire University of Michigan academic community, which is currently ranked as the No. 1 pre-medical college in the US.


Our program is designed for those who want to take a new path in their professional life; however, if you are seeking to enhance or improve an existing academic record for a more competitive medical school application we encourage you to consider the Master’s Program in Physiology and/or the Master's Program in Biochemistry (coursework track).
