Attention: Pre-Med Students

Postbaccalaureate Studies through SPS may be most valuable to individuals who have already completed most pre-med classes and only need to take a few more classes to fulfill requirements. Students have the ability to customize a program of study to meet their individual needs. Each semester, SPS welcomes students taking classes across Math, Statistics, Biological Sciences, Chemistry, Physics and Psychology for this purpose.

Students seeking an exclusive pre-med program with in-built medical school advising may want to consider the Postbac Premed Program at the Columbia University School of General Studies.
