Pre-Medicine and Pre-Health Professions Advising Center

Your Pre-Medicine and Pre-Health Professions Advising Center is a specialized office whose advisors are here to assist you in exploring health career options, building effective skills, and preparing for admission into graduate health schools.

Regardless of your major, you'll be assigned a pre-health academic advisor to support your academic and pre-professional pathway during your time at CMU.

Graduate health schools seek applicants with diverse interests and backgrounds, so we encourage you to think about what you are most passionate about and what you want to learn and do while in college.
