Talk to an Advisor

As the pandemic continues to unfold and knowing the upcoming academic year will look differently for each of you we want to assure you that whatever your choices are for this semester you will continue to have access to prehealth advising.  We ask that you continue to follow Duke’s directions for being on campus, but you will still be able to email HPA advisors and/or schedule virtual meetings.
 

The Office of Health Professions Advising at Duke is committed to providing holistic advising to all Duke undergraduates interested in preparing for a career in the health professions.  Our comprehensive, personalized advising begins your first year and can continue for up to five years post-graduation with everything from course planning, experiential preparation, application process and acceptance management.  In addition to advising we offer information sessions, a weekly newsletter with announcements and opportunities, and mock interviews.  (Please note that we are not able to meet with or advise prospective students.)

All advisor assignments are based on your first-year dorm or living situation.  Please note that you may have one advisor for your first-year and sophomore year and a different advisor for your junior/senior/alum years.  Transfer students should see the end of the list for your advisor.

Please do not make appointments with more than one advisor or send multiple emails for the same issue/time period.  You will receive the same helpful support from all advisors and this double booking leads to limited availability and confusion. 

To learn more about prehealth advisors—including contact information—refer to the expandable sections below.   If you have questions, call us at 919-684-6221 or email prehealth@duke.edu

Welcome to the Class of 2025

Welcome to Duke!   In your first semester you may find it helpful to review the Prepare section of our website.  We especially encourage you to review the Tips for Fall and Prehealth Planning Guide. The HPA Team is looking forward to playing a role in your time at Duke!

We are so excited to welcome you to campus and have created opportunities for you to connect with us during your first semester at Duke: 

Please continue to check the Fall 2021 Event document in the Prehealth Library for locations.  We will update this throughout the first few months with new events and additional information.

Class of 2023 Prehealth Advisors

Junior advising focuses on final coursework, timing of the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) or other exam, the application process, choice of schools, and letters of recommendation.  Students planning to apply to MD/PhD programs meet with the MD/PhD advisor listed in Special Interests.  We recommend that you talk with an advisor at least once a year to be sure you are on track and will be ready to apply at the time you wish.  This also helps us get to know you better when we write a committee letter on your behalf.
