In partnership with the Marquette University School of Dentistry, the Department of Biomedical Sciences in the College of Health Sciences offers a pre-dental post-baccalaureate program.
This program is designed to help students build a more competitive dental school application in 12 months. The program is for students who already have a significant scientific background but seek to strengthen academic résumés by taking an intensive pre-dental curriculum that includes graduate-level biomedical coursework and immersion in the dental field.
This is a unique opportunity, which not only enhances academic credentials, but also emphasizes the growing public health concerns within the field of dentistry and will include on-site experiences in urban and rural dental clinics as well as community health-oriented courses. The program not only brings together the academic and clinical strengths of the Department of Biomedical Sciences and the School of Dentistry, but also educates students about social justice issues and dental health disparities.
Therefore, this program will both prepare future health professionals and develop men and women for others who can champion social change in health care.
