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 a New Student Orientation, which will include advising and enrollment. Any KU Advisor can help you incorporate premedical courses into your schedule.

If you're currently a KU undergraduate student, you can bring your KUID to 109 Strong Hall, or send a polite request from your KU e-mail account to collegeadvising@ku.edu, and ask to add an appropriate interest code to your student record. Then, the weekly Premedical E-Newsletter, with announcements about club meetings, introduction and application presentations, volunteer opportunities and application reminders, will be sent to your KU e-mail account.
