The Office of Prehealth Studies has 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.
AskPrehealth for Fall 2021 will begin September 7. AskPrehealth is online advising that takes place Mondays-Thursdays via Zoom. No appointment is necessary. We strongly encourage Ask Prehealth and it is your best resource for getting your advising questions answered by one of our Advisors. More information is available on the Prehealth Canvas and Instagram, or by contacting the prehealth office.
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 a Medical Professions Workshop and/or an AskPrehealth session BEFORE requesting a one-on-one meeting with one of our advisors. Prehealth advisors do not evaluate transcripts or Degree Audits. Students are strongly urged to become acquainted with our office staff before requesting professional school application assistance from the Office of Prehealth Studies.
