Pre-Health Advising

The information provided is designed to assist current UA students, prospective UA students, and alumni in learning about careers in the medical field and the necessary steps for admission to Dental, Medical, Pharmacy, Veterinary, or other professional schools.

Pre-Professional Health Advising is not directly linked to any particular major, but rather it is designed for students in any discipline or college. Pre-health students have unique advising needs due to the competitive nature of professional schools and the varying admission criteria. Pre-Professional Health Advising provides the following resources to help students to become competitive applicants:

  • Guidance on admission criteria
  • Application assistance
  • Access to current information
  • Sequencing of courses
  • Long term planning
  • Guidance on co-curricular activities

These additional wrap-around advising services cannot substitute for the necessary and often required advising provided by a student's assigned college or faculty adviser.

Your education here at The University of Akron provides the foundation for your continued pursuit of professional school and is committed to helping you become a competitive applicant. We hope the information on this site and the resources provided by our office will enhance your Akron Experience as you prepare for professional school.
