Undergraduate Health Profession Programs on the Denver Campus

Two colleges on the Denver Campus offer health-related programs for undergraduate students seeking careers in the health sciences. Admission to the Denver Campus, however, does not assure admission to any professional health career program. Admission to those programs is a separate, competitive process open to qualified applicants from any accredited college or university.

BA/BS-MD Program

The BA/BS-MD degree program at the University of Colorado Denver (CU Denver) | Anschutz Medical Campus aims to promote diversity and to better serve the health care needs of the state of Colorado by assembling 10 outstanding students from broadly diverse backgrounds who are committed to serving the health care needs of Colorado. The program is a cooperative program between the University of Colorado Denver College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and the University of Colorado School of Medicine.

The desirability of obtaining an engineering education prior to undertaking a study of medicine is increasing continually as medicine itself is evolving. A great deal of new equipment, most of it electronic, is being developed to assist the medical practitioner in treatment of patients. Bioengineering, computer science and engineering, communication system design and analysis, big data analysis, mechanical engineering and probability are highly applicable to medical problems. The College of Engineering and Applied Science offers students a pre-medicine option. Contact the Engineering Student Services Center or a specific department for more information.
