Pre-Health Professionals Advising
Admission to postgraduate health professional schools is very competitive. UMass Lowell Pre-Health Advising team is here to support our students and alumni who plan to apply to medical schools, dental schools, veterinary schools, physician assistant programs, pharmacy schools, optometry school, and podiatry schools. Our team of advisors will assist students and alumni in navigating the admissions process, including making decisions regarding choice of major, satisfying admissions requirements with the appropriate courses, ideas on how to obtain clinical and volunteer experiences students and alumni should seek out. We help students and alumni prepare for a vast array of careers in the health and medical sciences by guiding them toward applying to professional schools.
For students and alumni that are in the process of applying to pre-health programs, we will provide workshops on writing an effective personal statement, what letters of recommendation will be needed, practice interviewing, and feedback on your application from our Pre-Health Committee. Together, we can get you ready for an exciting and rewarding career as a health-care professional.
