Post-Baccalaureate Reapplication Education Program (PREP)

Dr. Hood Watson speaking to a group of students.



PREP engages promising students from underrepresented groups, to include racial/ethnic minorities, rural and/or first-generation college students, as well as other students interested in further diversifying the physician workforce in post-baccalaureate courses to prepare them for medical school. At the recommendation of the Admissions Committee, students are invited to apply for the program. Students who successfully meet all PREP requirements are admitted to the College of Medicine. Two to three students participate in this program each year.
