Find Us on Fridays in The Hub

  • Pre-Health Quick Consults

    When classes are in session, Peer Mentors and/or the Health Professions Advisor will be available every Friday, all day, in The Hub (10a – 3p), on the first floor of the Davis Center. Undergrads / alums can DROP-BY (no appointment necessary) for a “Pre-Health Check-Up.”

    No inquiry is too small: Do you need advice about prerequisites? Non-academic experiences? The application process? Considering options for a growth year or two? Wondering about whether study abroad is possible? Want to think outside the box and investigate other health careers besides physician? Getting ready to apply this cycle? Get a conversation started with us on a Friday in The Hub.

  • Group Q & A:

    Get advice /ask questions in a group setting. This is a great way to meet the Pre-Health Career Peer Mentors for unstructured discussions. Some weeks there will be a specific theme. Check Pre-Health Home Page and Calendar for specific details.

    Fridays 9:15 – 10:00 am and repeated from 3:15 - 3:45 pm

  • Targeted Topics:

    Check Pre-Health Home Page and Calendar for details on guest speakers and scheduled information sessions. Targeted audience and topics will vary.

    2nd Wednesdays of the month, 7:00 – 8:00 pm.

Appointments with Health Professions Advisor:

We hope that the drop-by and group options noted above, in addition to our website, will meet the pre-health advising needs for most first year students while also supplementing the advising for other students and alums. If this is not the case, one-on-one appointments are available for individualized advising regarding your pre-health journey and health professions goals.

For students and alums planning to apply to medical or dental school, we recommend once yearly appointments for sophomores and once per semester for upperclass students and alums. Please self-schedule appointments through Handshake (or call The Career Center Office at 802-656-3450) rather than emailing the advisor to request a meeting. One-on-one appointments with the Health Professions Advisor happen in The Career Center on the second floor of the Davis Center, Room 204.

Masters of Medical Science (MMS) and Post-Bacc Premedical students should contact their program advisors for pre-health advising.

Pre-Health advising during summer months:

There is limited availability for in-person appointments with the Health Professions Advisor from late May through July due to Committee Letter preparation. Undergraduates and alums should self-schedule appointments through Handshake to check available slots. If there are no convenient times open, and you have a time-sensitive question regarding your application to medical/dental school (that cannot be answered after rechecking the centralized application service instruction booklet) email the advisor. Every attempt will be made for a timely response.
