The University of Connecticut's Pre-Medical and Pre-Dental Advising Office provides resources and advising to UConn students and alumni interested in pursuing careers in the health professions. Our office specializes in working with our pre-medical and pre-dental populations, but we encourage all students to explore their career options in health fields. Our advisors focus on competency-based advising, encouraging students and future applicants to engage in self reflection, rigorous pursuit of academic enrichment, and intentional exploration of co-curricular activities and engagement. Meet our advisors here, and learn more about our advising offerings here.
At the Pre-Medical and Pre-Dental Advising Office, we recognize the importance of Black and Brown lives, acknowledge systems of oppression, and center diversity, equity, and inclusion in all aspects of our work. To this end, we are committed to a sustained, holistic approach to advising that supports and celebrates the success of students from historically marginalized, underrepresented groups.
To begin your journey at UConn as a pre-health student, join our newsletter! The newsletter is our primary method of communicating information about pre-health professional opportunities, events, and resources—both on campus and off campus—to interested students. You must be subscribed to the newsletter to receive updates about the application process and relevant deadlines.
There is no formal application or declaration process for becoming a pre-health student at UConn. We consider joining the newsletter the unofficial way of declaring yourself on a pre-health professional track. Email firstname.lastname@example.org from your UConn email address to request to be added.
