We offer two tracks

Regardless of whether you are a science major or are looking to change your career to health care, we will help you take the necessary courses to transition into professional school.


Basic Core in Health Sciences

  • Non-Science Majors
  • Career Changers
The BCHS Program offers college graduates who have completed a baccalaureate degree, including professionals in non-healthcare careers, the opportunity to take the required science courses for admission to health professional school. In the BCHS program, students attend lectures and labs that have been specifically customized for post bacc students as a cohort. These full-time day classes are taught by outstanding faculty and are designed to enhance performance on standardized tests. In addition, students will receive organized standardized test preparation.
