Virtual Group Advising Sessions with the Pre-Health Advisor

In order to reach as many students and alumni wherever they may be during these unprecedented times, we are now offering weekly group advising sessions. Each week we will focus on a different topic or aspect of being a pre-health student at Tufts. Our monthly schedule of topics will be posted on our homepage sidebar, in our Canvas course calendar and in our weekly newsletter, Health-E News. We encourage all students and alumni to come to as many of these sessions as they are a great opportunity to engage with our team and ask questions.

We understand that many students will have questions regarding how the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic may affect their semester, experiential opportunities, testing and other academic issues pertaining to the pursuit of a health career. Please visit our COVID-19 FAQ page for information on resources and our advisors' responses to common questions. 


Our Mission

To support and encourage students as they explore the health professions and prepare competitive applications to apply to graduate professional school. We work holistically with students to assist with self-assessment and research into healthcare professions; foster self-directed learning; encourage both curricular and extracurricular growth and development; and stress the importance of integrity, responsibility and professionalism. 

If you are interested in pursuing one of the health professions after graduation, we offer information, advice and support to help you plan your curriculum and find health-related internships. We can also help you work through the application process for medical, dental, veterinary and many other health professions graduate schools. We are supplement to Tufts academic advisors -- here to work with you one on one. We also offer workshops and programs for pre-professional students.
