Steps to Follow
Welcome! New to the university? See our 2021 Orientation Pre-Medical and Pre-Dental Advising Office 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 main method of communicating information about pre-health professional opportunities, events, and resources both on campus and off campus to interested students.
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 view a recording of a group advising session from the 2020 — 2021 academic year, click here.
[Group advising sessions will resume during the 2021 — 2022 academic year. 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.]
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.
All one-on-one pre-dental advising appointments during the summer should be made by emailing Dr. Thomas Abbott directly. His email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
[Appointments during the academic year should be made with Dr. Thomas Abbott at nexus.uconn.edu. His fall advising hours will be available just prior to the first day of classes.]
