Pre-HealthPostbaccalaureate Program


Don’t just apply — apply yourself

Regardless of your academic background, Cal State Fullerton’s Pre-Health Professions Postbaccalaureate Career Changer Program is designed to help you become a competitive professional health care school applicant. But it’s not just forms, test scores and transcripts: In addition to providing the courses you need, you will have the opportunity to work with professional mentors and gain hands-on clinical experience.

Note: We have other programs available for part-time study and for students with some science background. Schedule an advising appointment with our program manager to learn more.

“One of the great things about this program is that you are with people with similar goals — we all want to get involved and help people. When you put people with those similar mindsets into a room, great things can happen.”
