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, see the First-year Students page on the PreMed/PreHealth website, or come to drop-in advising with a peer advisor. See our list of peer advisors at the bottom of this page.
