Pre-Health Professions Advising
Whatever career you decide on, we will find the right path to get you there.
A Career in Healthcare
A career in healthcare can be one of the most rewarding ways to earn a living while giving back to your community. Whether you want to become a physician, physician’s assistant, physical therapist, occupational therapist, pharmacist, optometrist, or other career, we can help you get there!
The Pre-Health Advisory Committee offers advisement for students interested in medical, dental, veterinary, optometry and other post-graduate professional schools. Gaining admission to these schools can be a complicated process. We will help you decide on the best career choice for you and help to prepare you for the challenge.
There is no specific pre-med major required to apply for medical school — a student in any major can apply for admission to these post-graduate schools. However, there are certain core science requirements for each discipline. The PHPAC will advise you on which classes and extracurricular activities will best prepare you for your career choice.
Finally, the committee will write a composite letter of recommendation based on an evaluation of your record of achievement. Most schools will require you to have this letter in your application — it is a very important part of the application process.
