Health Professions

Welcome to Health Professions Advising

This site is designed to assist BSU students interested in medical, dental, and veterinary professions, as well as other health professions, allowing students to better plan for and navigate the process of searching for and applying to graduate school.

While there are diverse opportunities in the health professions, students will find most programs require a specific selection of undergraduate courses necessary for entrance. In addition, BSU students who wish to enter the health professions should ensure they take advantage of research, clinical, and leadership experiences to make themselves competitive for entrance into the programs of their choice. This site provides resources and information to help you plan your path to a career in the health profession.

What services do we provide?

  • Helping to choose what courses to take to prepare you for graduate school (Note: that course requirements can vary between schools, so check for individual school requirements)
  • Discuss majors
  • Discuss graduate school and health career options
  • Discuss clinical, research, & extracurricular ideas and opportunities
  • Support you with the application process (including steps, standardized exams, application services)
  • Discuss study tips and test prep resources
  • Review personal statement and resume
  • Offer mock interviews
  • Write a committee letter for medical and dental schools
