Lots more than two, actually. Any additional undergrad (or, arguably, grad) after receiving a degree fits the definition.
1. there's no such thing as grade repair for MD schools, except in Texas academic fresh start.
2. the programs you're referring to are more commonly called SMPs (special masters programs) where you do most of the first year of med school as an audition for med school.
Yes there are. Berkeley Extension, Harvard Extension, Penn Special Sciences, UT Dallas, etc.
See the postbac forum
for more info.
Thanks for the clarifications; I know that my post was not all-encompassing - it was not aimed at anyone who has already completed UG... I was just trying to help OP see why staying at Ohio State and changing majors is a better option for him/her at this point than planning to continue with current major (presumably not taking any of the prereqs for med school) and then planning to do a postbac after graduating next year.
