The UC Davis School of Medicine Postbaccalaureate Program is a one-year program designed to help educationally and/or socio-economically disadvantaged students become more competitive applicants to medical school. We accept first-time applicants to medical school and reapplicants. The year-long program is composed of two major sections: the summer program and the academic year. During the summer, we focus on helping students to prepare for the MCAT by provding test taking strategies and study skills assistance. Students enroll in a full course load of upper division biological science courses Fall, Winter, and Spring Quarters on the undergraduate UC Davis campus. We provide continued learning skills support throughout the academic year and meet weekly to discuss current events in health care as a group. In addition to these activities, we also provide guidance on the application process through a series of workshops and individual appointments. Participation is limited to fifteen students. With major funding by The California Endowment, our goal is to increase the number of physicians who practice in underserved areas.
