UC San Diego & the School of Medicine

The UC San Diego Post Baccalaureate Premedical Program partners with the UC San Diego School of Medicine (SOM) in both the development and implementation of the Post Bac program. The program advisory board includes SOM faculty. While there is no guarantee that applications by Post Bac students to the UCSD SOM will be accepted, some alumni have applied and been offered admission to UCSD.

Post Bac program students may connect and build relationships with medical students through classroom visits and mentorships. Volunteer opportunities are available for Post Bac students in a variety of settings including community clinics, Camp Cardiac, the Border Health Project, hospital volunteer programs, etc.
