Premedical Programs

Welcome to Premedical Programs

Premedical Programs is both an academic unit and a service unit. We are home to the Premedicine and Predentistry majors. We also provide a variety of services and programs for students of any major interested in pursuing a health professional career. 

Premedical Programs oversees the Bachelor of Science in Premedicine (MED) or Predentistry (DEN), an interdisciplinary curriculum of study. These majors are distinctively designed to provide a biomedical science-based education as a preparation for admission to health professional schools including medical, dental, physician assistant, veterinary, and chiropractic. Find out more about our programs of study on our About the Major Page. 

The Premedical Programs Office functions as an information clearing house and provider of services to assist students in their preparation for health professional development courses, application workshops, speakers, DAT/MCAT prep and more.

Premedical Programs staff assist students in planning their individual journeys toward successful matriculation to medical, dental, physician assistant or other health professional school. This includes planning clinical and service activities, preparing for the application process, obtaining letters of evaluation, practice interviewing, and meeting with health professional school representatives during their campus visits.

Request for Evaluation
A composite letter combines the evaluations from several on campus sources and presents a well-rounded and holistic view of the medical or dental school applicant. The Premedical Programs Office assists students in this process by providing an on-line portal to submit requests for evaluation from individual University of Dayton faculty and staff and submitting the composite letter on the student’s behalf.
