Prehealth Advising 

Each field listed above has distinct requirements. Students should work with their prehealth advisor to ensure that they reach their goals. In addition to academic advising and assistance with professional school applications, we provide seminars, workshops and on-campus recruitment visits. We can also connect students with research internships and external summer programs.
