Linkage is a formal agreement between the Postbac Premed Program and a medical school, which enables highly qualified Postbac Premed students with a strong interest in one of these schools to accelerate the application process. A successful linkage applicant would matriculate in one of the 14 linkage schools in the academic year immediately following the completion of the orgo/bio year; typically after the second year for those students following the traditional program sequence.
