It is very important that you develop a relationship with at least one advisor in the Office. In fact, in order to be eligible to eventually receive a Committee Letter when you apply to medical or dental school, you must have a record of advising through the office. Find more information about Committee Letter eligibility requirements.
You only need to create an Appointment Plus applicant account once. Do not create more than one account. Appointments can be scheduled ONLY up to one month in advance. New slots open up at the beginning of each week. You may only schedule ONE appointment at a time. When you schedule an appointment, you are asked to complete a brief set of questions and indicate what you are planning to discuss during your appointment.
PRE-HEALTH 101 GROUP MEETINGS
- All freshmen and sophomores interested in the health professions (pre-med, pre-dental, physician assistant, nursing, etc.) are required to attend a Pre-Health 101 meeting prior to making their first individual appointment with an advisor. These 45-minute small group sessions are offered September through April and focus on the qualities and requirements of pre-health students and provide an opportunity for questions and answers.
- Sophomores who previously attended a freshman group meeting during academic year 2016-2017 are not required to attend a Pre-Health 101 session, and can schedule an individual advising appointment at any time.
- Juniors, seniors, transfers, and alumni are not required to attend Pre-Health 101, and can schedule an individual advising appointment at any time.
- To attend Pre-Health 101, choose a date and time under “Event Registration” on Appointment Plus. You must be registered to attend.
- If you arrive more than 10 minutes late to a Pre-Health 101 meeting, you will not be permitted to enter the meeting. Please arrive on time.
Pre-professional walk-in advising hours are for upperclassmen, as well as freshmen and sophomores who have already completed Pre-Health 101. During walk-ins you can stop by to get quick questions answered by a pre-professional advisor. Walk-in hours are Monday-Thursday from 12:00-1:00 PM.
You may not schedule appointments with more than one advisor in the office to ask the same or similar questions. If we notice that you have scheduled multiple appointments with different advisors within a few weeks of each other, we will contact you to cancel one or more appointments.
If you have questions or challenges scheduling an appointment, please call the Pre-Professional Office at 410-516-4140 or email email@example.com.
