Premedical Programs

Welcome to Premedical Programs

The Premedical Programs provide a comprehensive approach towards entry into professional schools of medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine and other allied health professions. We offer a degree in both Premedicine (MED) and Predentistry (DEN). Our majors provide a broad-based scientific and humanities curriculum which satisfies the typical entry requirements of post-undergraduate health care training programs. Over the past ten years, UD graduates have gained admission to health professional schools at an average rate of approximately 75%.

The Premedical Program office offers a range of services and advising for students of any major with an interest in careers in health care. Members of the Premedical Advisory Committee act as both primary advisors to students majoring in Premedicine or Predentistry and secondary advisors to other majors. We offer many unique opportunities for students with an interest in medical school. Scholarships, grants, workshops, symposia and other events provide extra value for our students.
