    Are there any schools that allow you to take med school classes with first year med students so that when you actually start med school you dont have to take those classes again??

    That isn't a general post-bacc program (at least I don't consider it one). Its the bridge program for economically/academically disadvanged persons. "The objective of the Bridge program is to promote entry and retain eight (8) disadvantaged medical student applicants who have been unsuccessful in gaining entry into medical school by providing a program designed to allow students to take a reduced course load, completing the first year of medical school curriculum in two years." Additionally OSU-COM also has a masters program which the students take classes with medical students for their curriculum.

    The schools I am aware of are UMDNJ (multiple campuses - Newark and Stratford), RF, BU (only a % of students), KCUMB (I believe, I know they are offering a Biomedical sciences degree, not sure if they are with the med students - its a new program), Georgtown, PCOM, EVMS, etc

    There are a few schools out there. The search function is apparently down right now but if you search for posts by Phil Anthropist in the post-bacc forums he has a good break down. Do a search for this topic as it has been discussed (ad nauseum at times) many times before. :luck:

    ***EDIT****
    Good programs - Thread
    Transfer credit to med school
    One year SMPs

    Are a few. Just search in the advance search option when you highlight "search" in the above menu bar.
