About the Post-Baccalaureate Pre-Medical and Health Professions Program

We know that not every student knows his/her professional goals when entering college, and others may start and even enter a profession after graduation from college and find that it is not the right "fit" for them. Our Post-Baccalaureate Pre-Medical and Health Professions Programs (PB-PMHPP) are designed for you people like YOU.

The Duquesne University PB-PMHPP are individualized, multi-track programs that will prepare you for the academic requirements, entrance examinations and application processes needed for admission to the medical, dental, or other health professional graduate program of your choice. We do not force you to pursue a pre-prescribed academic curriculum like many other post-baccalaureate programs.

We can help you get the necessary pre-requisite coursework, help you enhance your academic record, or help you become better prepared to achieve higher scores on the required entrance examinations (eg, MCAT, DAT, OAT) needed for admission to medical, dental, or other professional school. The PB-PMHPP features individualized academic plans, individualized and comprehensive advisement, as well as unique learning opportunities for students interested in pursuing further education in:

Allopathic Medicine (M.D.) Osteopathic Medicine (D.O.)
Chiropractic Medicine Pharmacy
Dental Physical Therapy
Nursing Physician Assistant
Occupational Therapy Podiatry
Optometry Veterinary Medicine

To apply, please see our application and instructions here.

Please note the Duquesne PB-PMHPP is not designed as a pathway to any of Duquesne's undergraduate freshmen-admit professional programs such as Duquesne's Physical Therapy (DPT) or Physician Assistant Studies (MS-PAS) programs. Students interested in these disciplines would enter the PB-PMHPP only to prepare to apply to programs for these disciplines that are outside of Duquesne University. Students interested in post-baccalaureate opportunities in nursing, pharmacy, or speech language pathology should apply directly to those programs at Duquesne.
