• Welcome!

    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.

As a new Doctor, what advice would you give to Northeastern PreHealth students?   Medicine is a fascinating interplay between clinical knowledge/clinical reasoning and interpersonal relationships that together dictate how good or bad we perform as providers. My biology background certainly prepared for the former (clinical knowledge/reasoning) more so than for the latter. But my other experiences at NU – the social entrepreneurship, study abroad – complemented the strong scientific background with the opportunity to understand other cultures, understand the barriers that people face in all aspects in their lives, and how to interact with people that had a very different story than my own. All of these play a major role in being able to translate clinical knowledge and reasoning into patient centered treatment plans. As such, I would encourage students to try to step out of their comfort zone and take advantage of the endless opportunities at NU to experience something different and new, and to reflect on how those experiences differ from theirs and how they pose different challenges.
