About the Program

The University of Arkansas premedical program provides guidance to all University of Arkansas students who are interested in pursuing a career as a physician.  We work with students from all degree programs and with alumni who choose to apply to medical school after graduation. We also advise students who have completed a bachelors degree at another institution but plan to attend the University of Arkansas to fulfill the requirements for medical school. Relevant information for all non-traditional returning students can be found under "Post-baccalaureate Premedical Advising".

Students at every stage receive personal advice and information about the premedical curriculum, community service programs, opportunities to gain health-profession experience, and timetables for MCAT (Medical College Admission Test) preparation. We conduct application, writing , and interview workshops.

Each year the UofA flagship campus contributes the largest number of students from a single institution entering the UAMS College of Medicine. In addition, our students have been accepted by many out-of-state and private medical schools, including Baylor, Cornell, Emory, Johns Hopkins, McGill, Tufts, University of Southern California, Wake Forest, Vanderbilt, and Washington University in St. Louis.
