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, genetic counseling, allied health careers, and others.*

Advisors are available to consult with students and alumni, answering questions on careers in health care, course planning, requirements for specific professional health programs and application guidance. 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.
