Manchester University’s Post-Baccalaureate Pre-Health Professions Program is designed to prepare college graduates who have a bachelor’s degree in a non-science field and want to pursue a professional degree in a health care field such as pharmacy or medicine. It is an accelerated program that incorporates a rigorous curriculum with plenty of personal attention.
The curriculum, a one year program divided into six eight-week blocks, meets pre-requisite requirements for many pharmacy and medical schools and some dental and veterinary programs. In addition to core classes such as microbiology and anatomy, the program will give students a well-rounded and holistic approach to health care, including courses in economics, communications and writing skills designed for health care professionals. The program also includes preparatory courses for health professional school entrance exams, such as the PCAT (pharmacy), MCAT (medical school) and DAT (dental).
For example, students enrolled in the new Post-Baccalaureate Pre-Health Professions program with the goal of applying to pharmacy school will complete economics in addition to all prerequisite courses in biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics and English and will integrate core concepts in the laboratories.
Manchester faculty and other experts in the health care field will teach the courses. Enrollment is limited to 20 students in order to maximize personal attention and collaboration. Our goal is to provide every student with individual advising and mentoring to prepare them for the opportunities that await them.
Classes will begin in mid-May 2015. Classes will take place at the Manchester University Fort Wayne campus, home of the College of Pharmacy, and labs will take place on the North Manchester campus.
