B.A. / M.D. Program

Campus Visit Options


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.


Weekly Information Sessions

The School of Medicine offers weekly information sessions. These sessions allow students to visit both UMKC campuses. Sessions held at the School of Medicine take place on the following days:

2014 Weekly Information Sessions

Monday: 2:00 p.m. Information session and tour
Friday: 2:00 p.m. Information session and tour

Your visit will consist of a presentation and tour of the UMKC Volker Campus, where students spend the first two years of the B.A./M.D. program. Once your tour is complete on the Volker Campus, you will travel to the Hospital Hill Campus for the 2:00 p.m. information session to receive more specific information about the B.A./M.D. program and a tour of the School of Medicine.

Tours of the Volker campus are typically arranged directly preceding the visit to the School of Medicine. The School of Medicine session will last approximately 1.5 hours, and can accommodate no more than 5 students and their guests, per day.

To schedule a Weekly Information Session, please contact the UMKC Office of Admissions at 816-235-1111.

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. For an archived version of the October 2013 webinar, click here.

    Additional webinar opportunities to be announced


Skype Appointments

For students who are unable to attend a weekly information session, a campus visit day, or a prospective student reception, we would like to 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 but still want 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 medicine@umkc.edu. 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 Brian Steele, School of Medicine Recruitment Coordinator, at steelebr@umkc.edu or 816-235-1870.
