About the Program

The Post-Baccalaureate Certificate Program in Health Careers Preparation is designed to provide students interested in careers in medicine, veterinary medicine, denistry, podiatry, and optometry with the opportunity to complete the undergraduate-level pre-health professional curriculum at Hunter College and obtain a Certificate in Health Careers Preparation. Prospective students typically fall into one of two categories:

  • Students with fewer than 15 credits in undergraduate science who have demonstrated interest in a health profession are considered for the Preparatory Track.
  • Students with existing science background who are in need of further science preparation or improvement of science performance (due to low grades or credits more than 10 years old) are considered for the Enrichment Track.

Once accepted, all students in the certificate program must complete a minimum of 38 credits in science courses at Hunter College , as well as 56 hours of service to the Hunter College community. Through regular advising provided by Hunter College’s Pre-Health Office, a specific sequence of required courses will be tailored to each student’s academic background and professional program needs.
