Health Professions Group Advising

Health Professions Group Advising Sessions

Throughout the fall and spring semesters, our advisers offer a series of prehealth advising sessions. Students considering medical, dental, podiatry, and physician assistant professions must attend a "Health Professions Overview", "E-portfolio Overview", "Dent Prep" or "PA Prep" group advising session (live or recorded) prior to meeting one-on-one with PreHealth Advising.

No registration is required.
