Pre-Health Post-Baccalaureate Program (PHPB)
The University of Florida's Pre-health Post-Baccalaureate Program (PHPB) offers dedicated and motivated students an opportunity to complete academic pre-requisite courses for admission to medical school or dental school. You will complete the majority of courses in science classes created just for post-bac students, experiencing the outstanding teaching faculty at the University of Florida. This program assists you in developing academic skills, application skills, and professional competencies necessary for the application to medical or dental school. Other health professions are considered, however, for professions other than medicine and dentistry, pre-requisite courses not included in our standard curriculum are not guaranteed.
The UF PHPB program offers three tracks to help you complete pre-requisite coursework. Each track requires full-time enrollment. Which track you choose will depend on your academic background. All tracks require a bachelor's degree for admission. For more information on each track, see the Admission and Course information.
