PostBaccalaurate PreMed program

Why choose a PostBaccalaurate PreMed program?
For college graduates and highly-motivated career changers who never took premed courses, a postbaccalaureate premedical program offers the opportunity for students to complete preparation for medical school, dental school, veterinary school, or nursing school, in just one year.  (And if you're interested in a career in audiology, optometry, pharmacy, podiatry, psychology, or rehabilitation science, a postbac premed program is a great place to start your coursework.)

Why choose the Bar-Ilan PostBac PreMed?

Because we offer smaller class sizes

Bar-Ilan offers the smallest class sizes of any postbac premed program in the world. Other postbac premeds study organic chemistry with 100, 200, sometimes several hundred fellow students; Bar-Ilan's postbac premed program is just 35 students per class, offering a level of personal attention you just won't find elsewhere.

Because we offer a lower price

The other postbac premed programs range from $27,000 to well over $60,000.  At Bar-Ilan, a MASA scholarship means you can attend for just $20,000, with the additional possibility of US federal funds.  The price includes all course tuition and laboratories, the official Stanley Kaplan MCAT preparation course, guided tours of Israel, and a clinical medical practicum in global health initiatives.


Because we provide intensive MCAT preparation

At Bar-Ilan, an intensive Stanley Kaplan MCAT course is part of your schedule--and entirely free with your tuition.  You'll enjoy the benefits of over 54 classroom hours and 30 testing hours, with additional practicums with tutors as needed.


Because of the personalized attention

Your personal statement, essays, and AMCAS application are essential to distinguish you from hundreds of other applicants to medical school, and can make the difference between being invited for an interview or immediate rejection. 


At Bar-Ilan, you'll work one-on-one with our American Program Director, the inaugural Chair of Family Medicine at Tufts University Medical School, to highlight your strengths, minimize your liabilities, choose distinctive personal statement topics, and be sure your medical school application is the best that it can be.  The small, selective nature of the program ensures that the faculty knows each of the students  very well; because of this, every student should be eligible to receive a personal recommendation letter from our American Program Director.


Because of our interview coaching
At Bar-Ilan, you'll learn how to confidently sail through a medical school interview, via our intensive interview coaching.

Because of our faculty mentoring

At Bar-Ilan,  our world-class faculty will work with you individually to create a strategic timeline for your medical school application process--and then to help you implement it.  With only 35 students in the program, you'll get an unparalleled level of attention and a compelling premed experience.


Because you get to study in Israel
Bar-Ilan offers the only postbac premed program in Israel--and an opportunity for young adults who have decided to pursue a medical degree to spend extended time in Israel.

Because of unique opportunities
The Bar-Ilan program also includes:
* A Magen David Adom (Red Cross) course in emergency medicine
* Introduction to the medical system in Israel, including extended tours of the Israeli medical schools and hospitals

* Guided tours (all fees included) of the nature, history, and culture of Israel

* An introduction to global health clinical medical initiatives in Israel and around the world

* A course in Jewish and Israeli history and culture

* Social weekends to encourage and facilitate networking and socialization between the premed students and the Israeli students on campus

* Participation in the Bar-Ilan Student Host Program, which connects students with Israeli families living in the greater Tel Aviv area
