UC Postbaccalaureate Consortium
The UC Postbaccalaureate Consortium is a partnership of postbaccalaureate premedical programs at the Schools of Medicine at UC Davis, UC Irvine, UC Los Angeles, and UC San Francisco. The mission of the Consortium is to increase the number of physicians who practice in shortage areas of California by assisting capable and dedicated students from disadvantaged backgrounds in gaining admission to medical school.
This site is part of a joint online application service for the UC Consortium postbaccalaureate programs, which allows candidates to apply to one or more of the programs simultaneously.
