Prehealth Advising

Welcome to the Prehealth Advising page!

A career in health is a commitment to making a lifetime of difference. Exploring different paths and programs is a crucially important (but not always easy) part of the journey. We’re here to give you all the support you need as you explore different careers in the health field, then prepare for and to a range of top-tier health profession  schools and programs.

Our dedicated prehealth advising team will help you explore your interest in health professions, and explore careers that impact healthcare. We work to demystify every step of the application process, sharing our expertise and experience in researching programs, understanding prerequisites and requirements, writing essays, and preparing for interviews. It’s an intense and involved process that requires insight and perspective, one-on-one support, and a shoulder to lean on. And that’s exactly what we provide to every student.
