Pre-Health Advising


Is Pre-Health right for you? 

The decision to pursue a career in the health care field takes careful consideration and reflection on your personal interests and motivation.  You will need to be realistic when thinking about your academics and skills in science.  Make sure you assess the demands of the field and have a clear understanding of the training involved so that you can make the most informed decision on whether or not this is the right path for you.  Get involved in a health care setting and see firsthand what the field is about and work to understand the population you will be serving.  Also, consult with advisors, career counselors, health professionals, professors, family and others who care about you.
