Office of Pre-Health and Pre-Law Advising:

The mission of the Pre-Health and Pre-Law Advising (PHPL Advising) office is to provide guidance and support to students interested in pursuing careers in the health and legal professions. PHPL Advising provides information about the field of law and a wide variety of health-related fields such as allopathic (M.D.), osteopathic (D.O.), and veterinary (D.V.M.) medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, optometry, podiatry, chiropractic, physician assistant, physical therapy, occupational therapy, and public health. These careers require academic study in professional school settings beyond the baccalaureate degree, and PHPL Advising assists “Pre-Professional” Students in any undergraduate major by offering academic advising, administrative support, and other activities related to preparing for and applying to professional schools.

The Pre-Health and Pre-Law Advising office serves as a focal point for communicating with Pre-Professional Students concerning:

  • Required courses for professional schools
  • Volunteer and shadowing opportunities
  • Internships
  • Extra-curricular activities
  • Medical or law school tours or meetings
  • Seminars and related workshops
  • Tests and application materials
  • Important timelines and deadlines
  • Selection of possible professional schools

PHPL Advising’s goal is to enhance the likelihood of success for all Pre-Professional Students who seek acceptance into a professional school. For more information visit the Pre-Health Pre-Law Advising website.
