The Board provides advice to help you prepare to successfully apply for admission to professional school. We can advise on appropriate courses to take, balancing academic and extracurricular work, developing a timetable to allow you to achieve the goals you have in mind, and—when the time comes—we guide you through the application process.

All of the members of the Board of Prehealth Advisers are pleased to talk with you. 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 you should follow, feel free to set up a meeting with one of us. All conversations are confidential.
