Board of Advisers

Student in laboratory

The members of the Board of Health Professions Advisers are appointed by the president of the college and work closely with the staff of the Lazarus Center for Career Development. The board provides advice to help you prepare to successfully apply for admission to professional school. We can advise on courses, balancing academic and extracurricular work, developing a timetable and the application process. If you’re not absolutely sure you want to pursue a career in the health professions, or if you’re sure but are wondering about the timetable to follow, feel free to set up a meeting with one of us. All conversations are confidential.
