The Post-Baccalaureate Research Education Program (PREP)

This certificate program is designed for students who have received or will soon receive a bachelor's degree and have not committed to a career path in science. It is designed to "immerse" students in an active research lab where the excitement of biomedical research is obvious and nurtured with the hopes of encouraging them to pursue doctoral training in the biomedical sciences.

If this sounds like you... apply to the PREP!

Applicants apply for a June start date. For higher consideration, have your application material complete by February 1; application deadline is May 15, 2017. For Summer 2017 admission, begin applying October 1, 2016.
