Health Professions Advising

GW’s Pre-Health Advising is designed to assist and support students as they explore graduate and professional programs in healthcare. Pre-Health Advisors meet with students and alumni from all GW colleges to provide information and guidance on the process of applying to health professions schools. These include medical, dental, physician assistant, nursing, optometry, veterinary, podiatry, chiropractic, physical therapy, pharmacy, and occupational therapy programs. Our advisors work to aid students as they work to become successful applicants for their preferred health profession by helping:

  • Identify required pre-requisites
  • Consider their strengths and weaknesses
  • Reflect on readiness to apply
  • Discussing preparation for professional exams
  • Identifying potential schools
