Summer 2021 Updates

  • The Health Professions Advising staff will continue to work with pre-health students (prospective students, current students, and alumni) in a remote capacity for summer 2021. To connect directly with a Health Professions Advisor via email, or to schedule a virtual advising appointment, contact HealthProfessions@pugetsound.edu.
  • Please note that email is the best way to reach Health Professions Advisors at this time, as the Health Professions Advising office phone is not being monitored daily. 

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 health care 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 health care, 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 therapy or physical therapy, you may also contact the University of Puget Sound's School of Occupational Therapy or School of Physical Therapy for additional guidance.
