Our Biology Post-Baccalaureate Program is a non-degree-granting program designed for college graduates who wish to fulfill pre-med, pre-dental, and other pre-health course requirements. Post-bac students receive individual attention from expert professors in a close-knit liberal arts environment, right in the heart of New York City.
Our post-bac program features:
A customized academic plan devised for each student based on academic background and career goals.*
No waitlist for courses.
Small classes (< 20 students) taught only by faculty (no teaching assistants).
Max. of 12 students per lab section.
Students work individually in the labs to foster independence and mastery of techniques.
Students have a science faculty member as their own advisor.
A pre-health committee of faculty members guides students in career goals, entrance exam preparation, and application and reference letter processes.**
Opportunities to conduct research.
Access to an extensive alumni network in the biomedical field.
We offer course sequences appropriate for M.D., D.O., P.A., P.T., R.N., D.V.M., D.D.S., and other allied health programs. Post-bacs choose from an array of biology, chemistry, physics, and math courses. We work closely with post-bacs to determine appropriate placement into courses based on academic experience and career goals. The program provides excellent preparation for pre-med and other pre-health post-bacs. See the course bulletin for upcoming offerings.
Eligibility for the Biology Post-Bac Program is evaluated on an individual basis according to each student’s undergraduate transcript and career goal. Please see our list of FAQs and check out some of our current post-bacs.
*Plan will be devised following admission to the program and receipt of deposit.

I believe that the small class sizes, individualized attention, and excellent facilities are exactly what I need to help me succeed in my aspirations to go to medical school. Coming from a large university where competition was intense and the professors hardly knew their students, I have been so pleasantly surprised by the dynamic here at MMC. As an added bonus, they have wonderful extra-curricular programs, and great food! I would highly recommend this program to anyone interested.</p></div><div class="lw_profiles_name"><a href="/live/profiles/3405-abe-libman">Abe Libman</a></div><div class="lw_profiles_104"><p> Biology Post-Bac, 2019-2021</p></div>

I wanted to enhance my application by showing I can improve in something that I once lacked in. Joining this program has been such a great privilege as I am receiving individual help whenever needed. Coming from a big college during my undergrad, I always felt lost in the big lecture halls. But at this program, I feel like I have finally found the right path and guidance. </p></div><div class="lw_profiles_name"><a href="/live/profiles/3406-shaista-shoukat">Shaista Shoukat</a></div><div class="lw_profiles_104"><p> Biology Post-Bac, 2019-2021</p></div>
