Our Mission

The purpose of the University PreHealth Advising Program is to provide resources and advising to members of the Northeastern community (students and alums) in all NU colleges and all NU fields of study regarding professional school expectations, preparation requirements, and application processes. Our mission is to both facilitate the success of NU applicants and be a trusted source of competent and caring health professionals. We work with students and alums considering careers in the areas of allopathic medicine (MD), osteopathic medicine, dentistry, optometry, podiatric medicine, or veterinary medicine. The NU PreHealth website provides access to on-line resources, a calendar of workshops, presentations, and special events, as well as information about how to request individualized advising, and how to network with other PreHealth students, NU alums who are current medical students, and healthcare professionals.
