Pre-HealthPostbaccalaureate Program


Linkage programs

If you want to create an even clearer path to a professional health care school, you can apply to one of our linkage programs, which are formal agreements between professional schools and Cal State Fullerton that offer special consideration to students that meet certain academic requirements.

Travel expenses for interviews can cost up to $5,000 each application cycle, and linkage programs can help you save both time and money by eliminating the need to apply to multiple schools. As a student in our program, you’ll have the added benefit of skipping the "glide year,” the time between completing the program and entering a professional school. Once you’ve been accepted into a school’s linkage program, you can transition directly from our program to theirs.

Students enrolled in the CSUF’s Pre-Health Professions Postbaccalaureate Program are eligible to apply once they have completed BIOL 172, CHEM 120A and a math class (if needed).

"This program taught me professionalism to the next level. All eyes are on you. And that’s not just for when you are applying to medical school, but more importantly when you're out in the real world."

- Evan Chang, Columbia Dental School graduate
