The Office of Prehealth Studies has trained, professional advisors to assist current Baylor University prehealth students with selecting coursework that is appropriate to their intended prehealth track. Our advisors will also provide guidance regarding course load, academic progress, professional development, and information on majors, minors, and careers.
Students who are designated prehealth are strongly encouraged to work with a prehealth advisor before registering for classes, particularly in the Sophomore and Junior years. We offer the following types of advising for our prehealth students:
- Group Advising Workshops
- Weekly AskPrehealth Q&A Sessions
- One-on-One Advising with Individual Advising Referral
Who should see a prehealth advisor? Any current Baylor University student with one of the following designations: Premedicine, Predentistry, Prephysician Assistant, Preoptometry, Prepharmacy, Preveterinary Medicine, Prephysical Therapy, & Preoccupational Therapy should attend an Allied Health Advising or Medical Professions Workshop and/or an AskPrehealth Q&A BEFORE requesting an one-on-one meeting with one of our advisors. Individual advising referral forms will be available at AskPrehealth sessions. Students are strongly urged to become acquainted with our office staff before requesting professional school application assistance from the Office of Prehealth Studies. Many questions are addressed on Canvas-based Advising PowerPoints for easy reference 24/7.
PLEASE NOTE: Honors Prehealth students are REQUIRED to see their Honors advisor before registering for classes.
Prehealth advisors do not evaluate transcripts or Degree Audits.
