Pre-Health Advising

Working with Emory undergraduates and alumni interested in healthcare professions, Pre-Health Advising supports students until they are ready to apply to healthcare professional schools. Throughout the year we offer:


  • Pre-health events and workshops that provide opportunities to help students explore health careers, learn about holistic development, hear tips on becoming a competitive applicant, and prepare for the application cycle.
  • One-on-one and group advising sessions where Pre-Health Advisors and Peer Mentors will identify and connect students with appropriate resources, help students explore careers in healthcare and determine the right courses to take, answer questions and provide feedback on application materials, as well as discuss how to find meaningful academic and extracurricular activities.
  • Preparation and practice for graduate school interviews through virtual and in-person mock interviews

Pre-Health Advising Program Goals


Connect students to resources and opportunities on campus and in the community.

Assist students to explore various careers in healthcare to figure out the right fit through programs, advising, and reflection.

Prepare students to determine readiness to apply by having them reflect on their experiences and competencies.


Support students as they apply to their chosen professional program and provide post-application resources.

About Us

The Pre-Health Advising Vision

To demonstrate highest standards of service to students and alumni in academic planning, introducing holistic development, and encouraging self-reflection regarding competencies needed for healthcare professionals. Our objective is to serve both internal and external constituents, and to enhance collaborations with faculty, alumni, healthcare professional schools, and healthcare systems locally and nationally.

The Pre-Health Advising Mission

To provide programs and advising with the highest standards of service for Emory students and alumni within four distinct learning objectives: Connect, Explore, Prepare, and Apply. We provide a supportive advising environment within this structure for students and alumni to thrive academically, and to recognize how their academic and extracurricular experiences translate to the healthcare professions.
