Johns Hopkins offers both a non-major undergraduate pre-med program, along with a post-baccalaureate pre-med program.
Current and Prospective Undergraduates
Undergraduates interested in pre-med programs are encouraged to take the advising track offered by the Office of Pre-Professional Advising. Any Johns Hopkins undergraduate student pursuing any Arts and Sciences or Engineering majors may also pursue the pre-med advising track. Pre-professional advisers provide students with academic advising, assistance in selecting the proper courses, and help with the medical school application process. Students interested in studying pre-med can choose any major.
College Graduates and Professionals
The Johns Hopkins Post-Baccalaureate Premedical Program prepares recent college graduates and "career changers" for admission to medical school. Designed to meet the needs of talented individuals from a multiplicity of backgrounds, this program is right for you if you have:
- Compiled an excellent academic record in college
- Not applied to medical school or taken the MCAT
- Committed yourself to serving others
- The ultimate goal of entering the medical profession
Full-time study is required for at least one academic year; most students finish the program in nine to 14 months. This highly selective program emphasizes personal attention and academic preparation for the best medical schools. You'll enroll in the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences day classes taught by outstanding faculty who are leaders in their fields, and you'll complete the core premedical curriculum at Johns Hopkins, known for its rigor and quality. Students also have numerous opportunities to gain experience in areas of interest related to medicine through tutorials at the School of Medicine and elective classes at the School of Public Health.
