Pre-Matriculation Program

The Pre-Matriculation Program is a six-week intensive academic program designed to provide entering medical students from underrepresented populations with an opportunity to familiarize themselves with the first-year curriculum.

Program Activities

Program content will come from the Molecular and Cellular Medicine block, Infection, Blood and Immunity block, and the Respiration and Circulation block.  In addition, students participate in technology orientations and skill development workshops on test-taking strategies, professionalism, study skills, and cultural competency led by KUMC faculty and staff.


Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the 2021 Pre-Matriculation Program will be taught via hybrid model, with in-person and virtual instruction.

Application Process
Instructions for applying to the Pre-Matriculation Program will be provided via email to those individuals invited to participate in the program.
