Pre-Medical Arts Program Plans

The pre-medical arts program at Valparaiso University is designed to prepare students for admission to medical, osteopathic, dental, or podiatry school. Students can prepare for entrance into medical, dental, veterinary, medical technology, physical therapy, and other health-related programs by entering one of the pre-medical arts programs of the College of Arts and Sciences at Valparaiso University. The following information is a guide to students planning to pursue a specific area within the medical field.

The American Dental Education Association (ADEA) provides a wealth of information to those interested in learning more about the dental profession.
The Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) provides a wealth of information to those interested in learning more about the medical profession.
The American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy (AACP) provides a wealth of information to those interested in learning more about the pharmacy profession.
The American Association of Colleges of Podiatric Medicine (AACPM) provides a wealth of information to those interested in learning more about podiatry.

Students in these programs must have their schedules approved each semester by their pre-medical arts academic advisor. Academic advising in the premedical arts is handled by a premedical advisor in collaboration with faculty mentors, all of whom are members of the Committee on the Pre-Medical Arts. All recommendations to the professional schools are sent out by this committee.
