Pre-Health Professions Program - Advising

Pursuing a career in a health profession can be overwhelming. USciences offers dedicated, full-time advising, with TWO full time pre-health advisors plus your academic advisor, who are with you every step of the way.

A Team to Support You

Our Pre-Health Advising team will meet with you each semester (or more, if you choose) to help you:

  • Set academic and extracurricular goals each semester to ensure that you are on track
  • Reach and exceed achievement goals, making you a competitive applicant in high-tier programs
  • Explore and identify paths/programs aligned with your personal philosophy, which may include one of our Pre-Health Professions Partner programs. Each program is unique, so before enrolling or applying to these programs, it is important that we work together to identify which program is best for you. Note: Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine and the Rowan School of Osteopathic Medicine each require a separate application process before or during your application to USciences.
  • Practice for admission examinations with robust preparation tools

Supporting your Professional Development

Beyond your academic and admission test performance, our Pre-Health (Pre-Med) team will also help you become a more competitive applicant and effective practitioner through the following professional development activities:

  • Helping you develop a strong personal statement
  • Encouraging you to explore activities that interest you
  • Providing feedback on application materials, secondary essays, and follow-up letters
  • Monitoring your performance and progression towards goals via a Pre-Health portal and tracking tool, unique to USciences
  • Offering professional development newsletters, workshops and events, such as our annual Health Professions Fair
