About the University of California Postbaccalaureate Consortium

The Premedical Postbaccalaureate Program is part of the University of California Postbaccalaureate Consortium and is open to first-time applicants and to re-applicants to medical school.

In addition to three quarters of upper division science courses, the year-long PPP's components include MCAT preparation, application assistance, interview process training, guest speakers, team-building exercises and social activities that promote academic success. The program is open to those applying to medical school for the first time as well as those reapplying.

The program helps to serve the UCR School of Medicine's mission to increase the number of physicians practicing in underserved areas by assisting educationally and/or socio-economically disadvantaged applicants in gaining acceptance to medical school.
