Post-baccalaureate Program

Post-baccalaureate Program

Designed specifically for students interested in a health professions career.

What is a Post-baccalaureate?

Post-baccalaureate programs are for students who have already completed an undergraduate degree or are working toward a secondary degree from an accredited institution, and the Salus Post-baccalaureate in Health Sciences is designed for those specifically interested in a health professions career.

This program offers students interested in pursuing a graduate or professional degree in the health sciences the opportunity to strengthen their scientific background or use it as a record enhancer, boost their CV, or earn prerequisite course credits. The biggest advantage to completing the program is that it makes a student a competitive applicant for any health professions program to which they apply.

Students in the certificate program will receive an introduction to patient care and have the opportunity to observe within the University’s clinical facilities, along with career guidance to assist them in achieving their ultimate professional goals. Eligible students accepted into the Post-baccalaureate program who successfully complete the certificate, submit a complete application, and meet the program prerequisite requirements will be guaranteed an interview to a Salus program of their choice.*

* Post-baccalaureate students must complete 25 credits while maintaining good academic standing (a GPA of 3.0 or higher and no more than two 'C' grades) in order to successfully complete the certificate program. Contact the Office of Admissions for additional information.
