Welcome from our Faculty Advisor

The USC Postbaccalaureate Premedical Program was created a number of years ago following conversations I had with Heather Rosen -now Dr. Rosen. At the time, Heather was taking the science courses necessary for medical school admission though she had recently graduated from USC with her BA degree in French.

Heather identified the need for a supportive community for students returning to school and turning toward a career in medicine, and we concluded that the answer was establishing a postbaccalaureate premedical program at USC.

What started as a tiny group -just a handful of students- has turned into a community of over 90 students. Even as we've grown, we've sustained that strong sense of community which defines our program. Our students know that they are not alone during this process, and the students themselves will tell you how important that is to them.

Our students are a focused, committed group and each student brings with him/her a unique background, a good deal of determination, and great potential for success. We recognize this, and do all we can to help each student on the path to success.

Congratulations on your decision to pursue medicine. I encourage you to explore our website. We've designed it so that you can get a sense of our community of students and a sense of what our program has to offer. I hope you enjoy it.
