How to Get Started

Your journey begins in your first year by talking to your Academic Advisor about your interest in medicine and meeting with a pre-health professions advisor. All students in the program will declare a major, take pre-medical courses and participate in the core curriculum.

Pre-Health Professions Advisors

The pre-health professions advisors assist students in tandem with their major advisor. The pre-health professions advisor informs the student of prerequisite courses, admissions test dates and application deadlines. As students prepare their application, the pre-health professions advisor will provide workshops, application feedback and letters of evaluation for application to medical school.
