Prehealth Advising


A trained and professional advisor will assist current Baylor University students with selecting coursework appropriate to their intended prehealth track. Advisors will also provide guidance regarding course load, academic progress, majors, minors, careers, and professional preparation. Students who are designated prehealth are strongly encouraged to work with a prehealth advisor before they register for classes, particularly in the Sophomore and Junior years.

Students may check their advisement requirements by signing into BEARWEB.

Professional health programs are highly selective. Therefore, it is important that students stay on track with academics, community service, shadowing,etc. in order to remain competitive.**

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

To add or change a Prehealth designator, please email with Prehealth Designator in the subject line.

Once you have your Prehealth Designator, you'll have access to the appropriate Blackboard and other communications directed to your preprofessional track. It is important that you check your Prehealth Blackboard often for updated information and available opportunities.

** The Office of Prehealth Studies does not provide or connect students with shadowing opportunities. We highly suggest that students connect with a local clinic on their own or through various prehealth student organizations for professional development. Please, visit our Research Opportunites Webpage to view the opportunities our office does offer. Thank you!
