Our students have earned undergraduate degrees in a diverse range of disciplines, mostly but not exclusively in the sciences. We provide the expert instruction and support to help them take the next step to a health profession – by deepening their knowledge base, preparing for the rigors of medical or another health professional school, or accumulating research experience.

Our faculty are veterans of the professional school admissions process: Many of them hold appointments in Georgetown School of Medicine and have served as admissions interviewers. Also supporting you in your journey are opportunities through the Department of Pharmacology & Physiology; the services of Georgetown’s experienced biomedical career counselors; and guest lectures by admissions officers from professional schools across the United States.

As a Georgetown student, you’ll gain the credentials to get into professional school and the knowledge to succeed there.
