Steps to Follow
Welcome! If you’re new to the university, please see our Fall 2021 Orientation Overview.
1. Join our Newsletter
Is this your first time meeting with someone from our office? Email email@example.com from your UConn email address to request to be added to our emailing list.
The Pre-Medical and Pre-Dental listserv is our primary method of communicating information about pre-health professional opportunities, events, and resources both on campus and off campus to interested students.
We also encourage you to follow us on Instagram! Find us @uconn_premed_predental
2. Attend a Group Advising Session
Group advising sessions are intended to serve as an orientation to the Pre-Medical and Pre-Dental Advising Office for incoming first-year students or any student new to a pre-medical/dental track.
All students are expected to have first attended either a live or virtual group advising session or viewed a recording of a group advising session in its entirety prior to requesting a one-on-one appointment with an advisor.
To attend a group advising session, please respond to the Group Advising RSVP form so that we have a record of your attendance. All sessions will take place at https://uconnvtc.webex.com/meet/preadvis.
Our current schedule for Fall 2021 is below:
1. Monday, September 13th from 10:00 am to 11:30 am
2. Thursday, October 14th from 4:00 pm to 5:30 pm
3. Monday, November 15th from 12:00 pm to 1:30 pm
3. Make a One-on-One Appointment
If you have met the criteria above and have specific questions you’d like to address, then we welcome you to request a one-on-one appointment with an advisor from the Pre-Medical and Pre-Dental Advising Office. To “meet” our advisors ahead of time, make sure to check out our advisor profiles. Note: for Fall 2021, both in-person and virtual appointments are available.
Appointments during the academic year should be made with Dr. Thomas Abbott at nexus.uconn.edu. His fall advising hours are every Wednesday from 4:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.
4. Drop-In Hours
During the Fall 2021 semester, we are offering virtual drop-in advising hours as well as walk-in open office hours.
To meet virtually with an advisor, join Paris Pruitt any Monday through Thursday from 4:00-5:00 p.m. at https://uconn-cmr.webex.com/meet/pcp13001 to ask any questions you may have regarding your pre-med journey.
To visit our advisors in person, walk in to the Pre-Medical Advising Office, located on the 4th floor of the ROWE building. Our doors are open every Thursday afternoon from 1:00-3:00 p.m. Stop by to introduce yourself to Krista, Erin, and Keat (and grab a stress ball). We can’t wait to see your smiling, masked faces again!
