Post Baccalaureate/Pre-Health Programs (PBPH) exist between Sidney Kimmel Medical College (SKMC) and both Jefferson College of Life Sciences and Bryn Mawr College. PBPH Programs are an early decision plan for entry in the MD Program at SKMC.
PBPH Programs are for students who have a Baccalaureate degree but need to complete additional course work to meet the prerequisites for entry into medical school. Suitability for a career in medicine is evaluated based on academic credentials, motivation and personal qualities. These Programs take place over the course of one year full-time, and two years half-time (with full-time employment).
