Choosing a career in healthcare is a series of decisions based on exploration, investigation and reflection. Pre-health advising in the College of Arts and Sciences is designed to provide undergraduate students guidance to enhance their preparation for a healthcare career. To successfully prepare for a healthcare program, students will need to continually assess their academic readiness, motivation and skills.
Getting involved in healthcare early through volunteering, shadowing or community service is essential to exploring what your chosen profession is really about and if it is the right fit for you. It is recommended that students meet with their pre-health advisor each semester.
