The Office of Health Professions Advising

... works with Duke students and alumni(ae) who aspire to careers in the health professions. 

If you find yourself drawn to the health professions, take time to explore your options. You will need to take a series of courses. To help you plan, you should meet regularly with your prehealth advisor and use your AdviseStream account to track your coursework and activities. While much of the advice on this website is geared toward medical, dental, and veterinary schools, don’t forget that there are many other opportunities in the health professions (e.g., physicians’ assistant, nursing, physical therapy, public health, optometry, occupational therapy) which you may find better suited to your professional and personal goals.
