The Pre-Medical Arts Program at Valparaiso University is designed to prepare students for admission to medical, osteopathic, dental or podiatry school.
The best evidence of the strength of our program is the high percentage of our premedical arts graduates who are admitted into one of the professional schools. Over the last 20 years, over 83% of VU students who applied to professional schools were accepted.
VU's Pre-Medical Arts Program offers several unique opportunities that help to better prepare students for success in professional schools and their choosen careers.
The Pre-Medical Arts Committee consists of seven faculty from the departments of biology, chemistry, and psychology whose goal is the help guide students in their preparation for professional school.
The Pre-Medical Arts Colloquium Series helps introduce students to the "real world" of medicine. Past speakers have included medical school students, dentists, and physicians.
The Pre-Medical Arts Club is a student organization that helps organize activities for pre-professional students. These activities include trips to professional schools, doctor shadowing, and the medical missions trip.
