Programs for Prospective Health Care Students
The UMKC School of Medicine is committed to providing opportunities for prospective students to investigate careers in the health profession and sciences, and to learn more about the School of Medicine.
High school students interested in learning more about what the UMKC School of Medicine has to offer should register for a campus visit through the UMKC Office of Admissions.
Students from the Kansas City metropolitan area have additional opportunities for investigation of a health science career. Students who have an interest in pursuing a career in the health sciences should think about taking advantage of the following opportunities:
- Summer Scholars is a program designed for minority and underprivileged students who demonstrate a solid academic performance and ability, and who have an interest in a health sciences career.
- Saturday Academy is a program designed to strengthen the math and science skills of participating students.
Students interested in either of these programs can contact the Office of Cultural Enhancement and Diversity at 816-235-1780.
