The purpose of the University of Connecticut’s Pre-Professional Advising Program is to provide systematic and sustained resources and advising to students and alumni of the University community for students interested in pursuing professional careers as doctors of medicine and dental medicine, or as physician assistants.
Opportunities and a wide variety of specialty preparation for all kinds of careers related to medicine are a growth industry in this country. The University, through its various schools including Bioengineering, Nursing, Pharmacy, and Allied Health, is committed to offering and training specialists in all these health care fields. Each of these schools provides their own personalized access to advising resources for students in their programs.
The Office of Pre-Professional Planning and Programming, with the support and direction of the Pre-Professional Faculty Advising Committee, provides individual advising, informational group and workshop activities, and professional school application process services to prospective students, current students, alumni, faculty, and University staff.
