Pre-Health Advising

George Washington University's Pre-Health Advising team assists and supports students as they explore graduate and professional programs in healthcare. Individuals interested in pursuing a health profession are encouraged to meet with a pre-health advisor to determine prerequisites, consider strengths and areas for opportunity, reflect on readiness to apply, and discuss application timeline, preparation for professional exams and program choices. 

Our advisors are well-equipped to offer guidance on the nation's leading medical, dental, physician assistant, nursing, optometry, veterinary, podiatry, chiropractic, pharmacy, physical therapy and occupational therapy programs.



Meet Our Advisors


GW pre-health advisors are available to guide you through the process of applying to professional health programs and schools. Through introductory information sessions and one-on-one advising, our team is committed to helping students successfully pursue their career goals.
