Academic Advisor Meetings

The School of Medicine encourages interested applicants to schedule a one-on-one meeting with Academic Advisor Jennifer Tufts to get a better sense of UMKC’s Bioinformatics program. During these meetings, prospective students are able to ask specific questions about the program, learn more about the various degree completion options, and experience the Hospital Hill Campus first hand.

Webinar Information Session

The UMKC School of Medicine held an interactive live-stream Bioinformatics Programs Webinar for those interested but unable to join us for a scheduled on-campus visit. Reviewing this webinar allows prospective students to hear from an admissions representative as well as the Academic Advisor for the Department of Biomedical and Health Informatics.

The 2014 Bioinformatics Programs Webinar has already taken place, and the recording is now available by clicking here.

For more information on these visit options or the programs offered in collaboration with the Department of Biomedical and Health Informatics, please contact the UMKC School of Medicine Office of Admissions at 816-235-1870 or
