About College of Medicine – Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences and Professional Studies

The Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences and Professional Studies offers over 40 doctoral, master's and professional development programs. These academic programs emphasize real-world experience and help guide students to make career decisions that best fit their abilities and evolving needs.

The Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences and Professional Studies at Drexel University’s College of Medicine offers the part-time Evening Post-Baccalaureate Pre-Medical certificate (PMED). This program gives individuals who hold a non-science baccalaureate degree the opportunity to continue working while they take courses in the evening to prepare themselves for medical, veterinary, dental, podiatric, chiropractic, or other allied health professional schools. This program also affords the individual who took science courses many years ago the opportunity to revisit the sciences. The structured program is the equivalent of five semesters completed in succession, delivered either face-to-face or in a hybrid format with asynchronous lectures and on-campus labs.  

Job Summary

The program consists of 5 semesters parsed out over 2 years. The curriculum offers the prerequisite science courses required by most health professional schools. During the first year, general chemistry and general physics with laboratories are offered along with an elective math course. During the second year, students take organic chemistry and general biology in the summer and fall semesters. In the final spring semester, a formal MCAT review course is offered to students, expense-free. In addition, two elective courses are offered including Molecular Biology & Biochemistry and Sociology & Psychology.

In the event that a section or course is cancelled for any reason prior to the first class session, your appointment to teach that section will be rescinded. If the course cancellation occurs less than seven calendar days prior to the first class session, and if the University is unable to offer you reassignment to a comparable class, the University shall compensate you $250 with the exception of those graduate courses that constitute thesis supervision.
