Resources for First and Second Year Students

The Office of Pre-Health Professions Advising provides resources and support for all students considering a career in the health professions, regardless of major. Students of any major can apply to medical school, not just those with undergraduate degrees in the sciences. Our office will help you craft a sequence of courses that not only prepares you for graduate school, but allows you the opportunity to focus on your passion. Health professions are looking for people who:

  • Care deeply about other people, their problems, and their pain
  • Enjoy helping people with their skills and knowledge
  • Enjoy learning and gaining new understanding
  • Are interested in improving the lives of others

If this sounds like you, an appointment with the Pre-Health Advisor is the best place to start.

The Office of Pre-Health Professions Advising provides a guide for first and second year students to assist you as you prepare for a career in the health professions. This guide provides important information as you begin the college experience.
