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.

To request a meeting, contact the Office of Admissions, and we would be happy to assist.
