Health Professions Advising
The Health Professions Advising website is your information hub. For the fields of medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine, nursing, physician assistant, and physical therapy, there is detailed information about course requirements; academic planning; gaining experience; and applying to professional schools. For those who are exploring options in the health field or planning broadly, there are links to a variety of health careers websites as well as a year-by-year calendar.
In addition, all incoming students are assigned a career advisor who will help students pursue career-related experiences during the summer, including summer research, internships, and volunteer clinical experiences, as well as post-graduate employment (e.g. medically related experience and/or research) before grad school. If you decide to pursue career options outside the health profession, your career advisor will help you explore these interests.
