Courses taught by USciences faculty provide students with the opportunity to learn from experts in their respective science disciplines. While staying current in their disciplines through research and teaching, faculty members also serve as academic advisors to ensure students are completing the courses required of their major in order to graduate on time. Our low student-to-faculty ratio of 9:1 enables our students to develop professional relationships with their faculty. This contributes to the academic success of our students and their ability to conduct research as early as their first year. As a result, faculty members write stronger letters of evaluation for students’ applications to health professions or graduate schools.
Pre-Health Professions Advisors deliver valuable insights into science and health professions programs, including requirements for acceptance and what the experience is like once you are there. They have significant expertise in guiding students through all aspects of the application cycle and constantly update their skills through participation in local, regional, and national professional meetings.
