Welcome to the Post-Baccalaureate Program
The Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine will begin accepting applications for the 2015-2016 Post-Baccalaureate Pre-Med Program class in the late Fall 2014. Additional information will be posted on this site once the application and materials are available. Please see Admissions Requirements and Application Process links on the left for more information.
The Program is an excellent preparation for individuals who are changing careers, interested in applying to an osteopathic (D.O.) or allopathic (M.D.) medical program and/or for graduating students who need to meet or strengthen the requirements for health professions schools. The Program at VCOM is a non-degree granting, certificate program offered to attract individuals from rural areas, low-socioeconomic status backgrounds, and underrepresented minorities.
Our four-year average acceptance rate to medical school for students completing the Post-Baccalaureate Program is approximately 74%.
The curriculum includes biomedical and research coursework, clinical experiences, and an international missions or Appalachian outreach experience.
