The mission of BYU Predmedical advisement is to help you 1) determine if you want to become a physician and 2) get admitted to the best possible medical school for you. We do this by helping you understand the coursework and extracurricular preparation that you need to complete in order to become a competitive applicant. Although premed students are very bright and self-motivated and can generally understand the process, we believe that your odds of admission are better if you use our services. We regularly consult with admissions committees at various medical schools. We know the data on who gets in and who doesn't. More importantly, we often know WHY students don't get in--despite having met the general criteria. We know which applicants get the most offers and how they stand out from the crowd. Come let us help you become and then shine as the best applicant you can be.

Before scheduling an appointment to meet with an advisor, we encourage you to review all the materials in the tabs below, particularly in the area of 'Becoming a Competitive Applicant'. This article at prospectivedoctor.com also provides a very nice summary of how to become a doctor . These documents will answer many questions and then the advisement appointment can be better used to personalize your preparation, answer more unique or difficult questions, etc.

We also ask that you attend one of our prehealth workshops which are listed here . Many if not most of your general questions will be answered in the workshop. This enables us to use our one-on-one appointments to answer more specific questions you may have.
