Health Professions Advising

Health Professions Advising supports students in preparing for and applying to health-related professional programs. Our goal is to help individuals reach their full potential as strong applicants and future healthcare professionals. We provide academic advising, career counseling, mock interviews, letters of evaluation, and application assistance. Common fields of interest for pre-health students includes medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine, physician assistant, optometry, nursing, podiatry, pharmacy, allied health careers, and others.* 

Advisors are available to consult with students and answer questions on careers in healthcare, course planning, and requirements for specific professions. Though students will primarily work with an advisor in their major, anyone interested in the health professions will also work with a pre-health advisor. Contact healthprofessions@pugetsound.edu with your questions or to make an appointment. 

*If you are interested in occupational or physical therapy, contact the University of Puget Sound's School of Occupational Therapy or School of Physical Therapy.
