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 (Andrew Simmons will not hold office hours in Spring 2014). Students can visit us during office hours posted below. We are also available via E-mail. For general questions E-mail If you want input via E-mail from both G. Vassilev and A.
