As the former director of the Johns Hopkins and Goucher Post-Baccalaureate Premedical Programs and with 25+ years of experience advising students, I have deep knowledge regarding post-baccalaureate premedical education. I published an article in Premed Life Magazine (starting on page 29) written from the viewpoint of prospective post-bac students.
The article covers the important elements students should consider when weighing different programs. Since post-bac programs have proliferated wildly in recent years, the choices can often be confusing to students. For any student considering post-bac programs this article will shed some light on important aspects to consider.
