Pre-Med / Pre-Dental Programs
Interested in attending medical school or dental school?
Saint Peter’s University has an agreement with Ross University School of Medicine (RUSM) to enable qualified Saint Peter’s graduates to study medicine at RUSM. This is not an accelerated program, as students still need to complete four years of studies at Saint Peter’s.
Qualified Saint Peter’s students who earn full acceptance into the medical school will receive a scholarship toward tuition. The medical campus for RUSM is located in Barbados, but affiliate teaching hospitals are located throughout the US. RUSM is committed to educating a diverse group of skilled physicians.
The Pre-Med/Pre-Dental Program is designed to prepare you to attend medical or dental school after graduation from Saint Peter’s University.
We can help you choose your academic program, plan for the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) or the Dental School Admission Test (DAT), select appropriate internships or research experiences and apply to medical or dental school.
Medical and dental schools do not require specific majors; however, they do require exceptional performance in a series of very specific science and mathematics courses including biology with lab, chemistry with lab, physics with lab, calculus, statistics, and organic chemistry with lab.
We also recommend that students take biochemistry.
Admission to medical or dental school also requires very high scores on the MCAT or DAT exams.
Contact us as early as possible for information and guidance about preparation for medical or dental school, the application process, and the undergraduate courses required.
