Guiding pre-health profession students on their journey to change the world.


The goal of the Health Professions Office is to help pre-health professions students better prepare for application to professional schools. Pre-Health Professions Coaches provide students with strategic coaching and relevant resources to help them determine the next steps as they progress toward their individual goals. Coaches also provide a supportive environment for students to explore their potential fit and competitiveness for a health professions career.


  • EMPOWERING – Meet students where they are and help them to identify and initiate the next steps
  • ENCOURAGING – Encourage students to actively investigate health profession careers while on their path to self-awareness.
  • EDUCATING – Guide students in making informed health professions career choices that embrace their values, skills, and interests.
  • SUPPORTING – Serve as a dynamic advising resource to assist students in determining fit, and competitiveness for applying to professional school.
