Medical School/DO School

Premedical advisement is for students that are interested in becoming physicians. Physicians diagnose illness and injury, prescribe and administer treatment, and advise patients about how to prevent and manage disease. We help students determine if becoming a doctor is right for them. Students will learn about both allopathic (MD) and osteopathic (DO) medical schools.

We assist students in planning necessary classes and preparing for the Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT). Additionally, we counsel students about specifics such as shadowing a doctor, having patient exposure opportunities, obtaining letters of recommendation, performing community service, and being involved in any other extracurricular activities that will improve students’ chances of gaining admission to medical school.

We are available to all students regardless of major. We strongly advise students to come in and meet with our advisors to help guide you through your undergraduate experience. Please click below to see the available handouts.
