Welcome!

Pre-dentistry, medicine, optometry, physician assistant and veterinary medicine are career interests, usually developed together with completing a bachelor's degree and major. Any undergraduate bachelor's degree and major is fine, though it would take longer than four years to combine some professional school educations with premedical requirements. 

If you're a prospective student, you can schedule a Campus Visit through Admissions.

If you're a new student, please attend an Orientation, which will include advising and enrollment. Your Academic Advisor will help you integrate premedical courses into your schedule.

If you're currently a KU undergraduate student, you can send a polite request from your KU e-mail account to collegeadvising@ku.edu, asking to add the appropriate premedical interest code to your student record. Then, weekly E-Newsletters will be sent to your KU e-mail account, with announcements about Premedical Workshops, club meetings, volunteer opportunities, application reminders and more.

KU Premedical Advisors include:

  • Alexis Catanzarite - Premedical Students Assigned to the Undergraduate Advising Center, Last Names A-L
  • Paul Crosby - Premedical Students Assigned to the Undergraduate Advising Center, Last Names M-Z
  • Sandy Leppin - Edwards Campus, Biotechnology and Molecular Biosciences Majors
