Post-baccalaureate Programs

Post-baccalaureate programs are a great way to sharpen research skills, become more comfortable with a research topic, and become a more competitive applicant for Ph.D. and M.D.-Ph.D. programs at leading institutions. These programs offer a year of paid research experience, GRE test preparation, and professional development to recent college graduates.

A number of Leadership Alliance institutions host an NIH-funded Post-baccalaureate Research Experiences Program or PREP.  The goal of PREP is to “strengthen the research skills and academic competitiveness of participants for the pursuit of a Ph.D. degree in biomedical sciences”.  Some programs have already begun to accept applications from students who will graduate in May 2018. If you think this opportunity may be a good fit for you, please review the full list of PREP Programs. Those hosted at Leadership Alliance institutions are listed below.
