School of Medicine Post-Baccalaureate Program
The program’s main goal is to recruit and support students from under-represented groups in medicine, whose academic background made them a higher risk for admission in medical school, and have them complete 24 hours of intense undergraduate and graduate science courses prior to starting medical school. Accepted students receive up to $7,000 and are guaranteed admission to the CU School of Medicine if the program is successfully completed. Successful completion is defined as at least 24 hours of science, half at the graduate level, and at least a 3.5 GPA for the year (all A’s and B’s). Students who are considered for this program must be CO residents and must have applied to the MD program. Applicants are chosen from the MD applicant pool each year.

School of Dental Medicine Post-Baccalaureate Program
This program is a structured, yearlong curriculum with a full academic load in the sciences. This concentration in the sciences not only allows the student to improve his or her credentials, it also has the potential to ease the academic stress of the first year of the dental curriculum. This program is designed to help address the shortage of ethnically underrepresented professionals practicing dentistry in the State of Colorado and the nation. Currently those underrepresented populations are Hispanic, American Indian/Native American and African American health professionals.
