The Amherst College Post-Baccalaureate
Course Work Option
The Health Professions Committee is currently accepting applications from sophomores for the Post-Baccalaureate Course Work Option. The College will support up to three students in the Class of 2019 to return to Amherst for one or two semesters after graduation, in order to complete science requirements for medical school.
The goal is to assist students who are best served academically by spreading out the required courses for medical school admission. Students in this program will be expected to graduate normally having completed a major in May 2019. They would then return to campus in the fall of 2019 to take two Amherst College laboratory science courses that semester, and an additional two courses if needed in the spring semester of 2020. On occasion, students may be eligible to take a Five College course as part of the program, but only upon the approval of the program advisor.
In addition to taking the courses, students in the program would be involved in other health- or science-related activities such as research or volunteering. There will be no charge for tuition, and room and board will be provided, for participants in this program. On-campus housing is required. Only students who receive financial aid are eligible to apply.
The application deadline has been extended into June 2017. Please contact Dean Richard Aronson at email@example.com as soon as possible to express your interest in applying.
