Advising and Support
A Wealth of Resources: Individual Advising and Academic Support
We are committed to providing the finest academic and advising resources to prepare students for success. A small class of approximately 30 students ensures that we will become well acquainted with each individual, allowing us to provide excellent support. Students meet regularly one-on-one with the program’s director and assistant director to receive personalized guidance.
The post-bac program understands that completing an intensive year of science courses is difficult. As such, we are prepared to provide the best possible resources to support you throughout the year.
Free tutoring is offered through Krieger School’s Office of Academic Advising, and is targeted to many of the premedical courses in which you will be enrolled. In addition, the post-bac program hires former students to provide tutoring services and review sessions in chemistry during the summer. Their unique perspectives and skills serve as a source of support to post-bac students. The program also hires both physics and organic chemistry tutors to serve the needs of the post-bac students throughout the academic year.
The post-bac program offers a vast array of workshops for students in an effort to provide extensive information about the application and admissions process to medical school. Presentations by medical school admission representatives and topical lecture series are hosted on campus throughout the academic year.
The program can also prepare a comprehensive premedical letter of evaluation for each student based on personal advising sessions and letters submitted by faculty and others from prior college work, volunteer experiences, and employment.
