The Office of Pre-Health Advising and Mentoring provides guidance to students interested in a career in one of the below health disciplines. This page is a starting point for students to explore the many different health professional options available to them as pre-health students. Many healthcare fields are interconnected; however, each career path has its own set of responsibilities, demands, and rewards. A career in the health field involves contributions and dedication from professionals with a wide variety of specialties and expertise that work together as a team to provide the best care possible to their patients. In order to make the choice that best fits their strength, goals, and interest we encourage students to engage in dialog with health professionals, gain practical experience through shadowing and volunteering in a healthcare environment.
