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

Class of 2024 Prehealth Advisors

Junior, Senior & Alumni Prehealth Advisors

Junior, senior and alumni advising focuses on final coursework, timing of the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) or other exam, the application process, choice of schools, letters of recommendation, interview preparation and gap year opportunities.  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.

If you are a junior, senior, or recent alum and/or you have not established a relationship with another advisor, you should schedule your advising meetings with your advisor listed here.  However, if you have been working with a particular advisor and you would like to continue that relationship, we encourage you to do so.

We understand that some of you may have worked with a different advisor (or even multiple advisors) and sincerely appreciate your flexibility as we make changes to provide you with better access to advising and expand our resources and programming.
