Pre-Medical/Pre-Health Advisors

The UMass Amherst Pre-Med/Pre-Health Advising Office is dedicated to helping students become competitive applicants for health professional schools.

Sophomores, juniors, seniors, and alumni, contact a pre-med/pre-health advisor as soon as you think you’re interested in a health career and at least once per semester moving forward.

First-year students, attend the group advising meetings in fall and spring semesters (advertised in the newsletter) to prepare for a career in the health professions. If you have additional questions, see the First-year Students page or come to drop-in advising with a peer advisor. See our list of peer advisors at the bottom of this page.

Peer advisor drop-in hours for the Fall 2017 semester are:

  • Monday 10 to 11:30 a.m. and 12:30 to 2:30 p.m.
  • Tuesday 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
  • Wednesday 10 to 11:30 a.m.
  • Thursday 1 to 3:30 p.m.
  • Friday 12:30 to 2:30 p.m.
