The UMKC School of Medicine understands the importance of visiting campus to determine whether or not UMKC and the School of Medicine can offer you the right experience for your college education. The School of Medicine offers several options to learn more about the B.A./M.D. Program.
Campus Visit Days
School of Medicine Campus Visit Days are comprehensive, half-day programs that allow guests to explore both UMKC’s Volker and Hospital Hill campuses. During these events, prospective students have the opportunity to interact with current B.A./M.D. students, School of Medicine staff and Admissions representatives. Campus Visit Days include overview presentations, walking tours and medical simulation activities.

Webinars and Recordings
For students who are unable to attend or participate in another School of Medicine event, we offer the opportunity for students to learn more about the School of Medicine by participating in a webinar. Students participating in the webinar will learn more about the B.A./M.D. program, and will have the opportunity to ask questions of the presenter.
Please view our most recent presentation recording outlining the B.A./M.D. Application Process (2018).
For students who are unable to attend a freshman visit, a campus visit day, or a prospective student reception, we offer the opportunity to learn more about the School of Medicine through a Skype appointment. These appointments are NOT designed for students who have had the opportunity to visit campus or attend another School of Medicine event, but rather for students who are unable to take advantage of those opportunities and would like to learn more about what the School of Medicine has to offer. The School of Medicine Office of Admissions will be happy to honor requests for a Skype appointment from those students who have not already attended a School of Medicine event. Skype appointments are offered Monday – Friday.
To schedule a Skype appointment, please email the School of Medicine Office of Admissions at firstname.lastname@example.org. In your email, please include three possible dates and times. Someone from the School of Medicine Office of Admissions will confirm the appointment time as soon as possible.
For more information about our visit options, please contact the School of Medicine Office of Admissions at email@example.com or 816-235-1870.
