Health Professions Advising Services

The advising offered by our office supplements the academic advising provided by the advising center in the student's primary college. We support students interested in preparing for professional school in the areas listed to the right.

We provide one-on-one appointments, group workshops, personal statement appointments, and mock interviews. We do not have "walk-in" appointments.

We also do not help with course registration, degree requirements, or graduation timelines.

Our office works with students to build a strong profile for application to professional school. Our advising, workshops, and ePortfolio system are utilized to better prepare students for their eventual applications.
