Group & Individual Advising

GROUP & INDIVIDUAL ADVISING

To provide the best guidance to students and alumni, Health Careers Advising offers information sessions, group and individual advising that address all aspects of the preparation for study and careers in health and medicine.  

STEP 1 All newly-admitted students interested in the health professions attend the Health Careers session during Orientation week.

STEP 2 First-Year and Sophomore students start by attending the information sessions for their respective class years. Juniors, Seniors and Alumni preparing for the application process attend the applicant seminars during the academic year leading to their application.

STEP 3 We encourage all students to attend the Health Careers Advising Bonanza offered every semester at the beginning of the course registration period. A number of other health careers programs are offered throughout the year. 

STEP 4 Individual advising is available with the Health Careers Peer Advisors, George Vassilev and Karen Whittet. Students can visit us during the office hours posted below. Although Karen Whittet and George Vassilev can meet with any student, we ask First-Year and Sophomore students to meet with Karen Whittet and Juniors, Seniors and Alumni, with George Vassilev. We are also available via E-mail. For general questions E-mail hco@brown.edu. 

STEP 5 Students and alumni who are unable to visit during office hours may schedule a brief in-person or phone appointment by contacting Kathy Toro. Appointments are only scheduled for students who have completed their Health Careers Portfolios and alumni far from campus.
