You and your guests are invited to learn more about the Columbia University Postbaccalaureate Premedical Program at a special information session for admitted students. The information session will feature a discussion with the Postbac Premed academic advisors and current students in the program on topics such as medical school admission, academic support services, and linkage programs.

During Postbac Admitted Students Day, a Postbac Planning Session (PPS), which provides a program overview, details about the curriculum and clinical and research opportunities, and information about medical school planning and preparation, will be conducted. Students who attend are therefore not required to attend a separate PPS.

Following Postbac Admitted Students Day, attendees may schedule academic advising appointments upon submitting the Acceptance Reply Form and tuition deposit.

An optional student-led campus tour will be held from 12-1:30 p.m.

Note: You may not register for a Postbac Premed Admitted Students Day if you have not received an offer of admission from the School of General Studies.
