PreHealth Advising

Alumni Services

Are you an alumni of Penn State interested in applying to a health professions program? PreHealth Advising at Penn State is here to help. 

Many Penn State alumni applying to health professions take additional time post-graduation to work on prerequisites, gain experiences, or conduct research. The PreHealth Advising Center offers continued support through in-person, phone, or Zoom appointments to help students applying to a health professions program after graduation. Alumni may also use our e-portfolio and letter collection services, and apply for our letter packet at any time after graduating from Penn State.

We want to assist alumni with understanding:

  • Information about health profession prerequisites and expectations.
  • The demands of a health professions degree.
  • The keys to being a successful health professional school applicant.
  • Relevant courses and experiences that strengthen their application.
  • Application assistance and candidacy evaluation.
  • Comprehensive Interview and Cover Letter for health professions applicants.

If you are a graduate of Penn State and interested in applying to a Health Professions program, please call 814-865-7620 to schedule an appointment. You may also attend our virtual group advising sessions
