Pre-Health Quick Questions are a time to speak briefly with a pre-health advisor to ask quick questions. Quick Questions are held at least once a week during the academic year and an updated schedule can be found on the Career Services Same Day Advising schedule.
- During the semester, Pre-Health Quick Questions will take place on Mondays 2pm-3:30pm, Tuesdays 5pm-6pm, and Wednesdays 3pm-4pm. Appointments will be by phone rather than in-person. Procedures for scheduling an appointment are as follows:
- Navigate to Handshake’s Career Center and choose “Pre-Health Quick Questions (Phone)” under either the “Same Day Advising” or the “Pre-Graduate School Advising” categories.
- You must provide a phone number where we can reach you.
- If your appointment request is approved, an advisor will call you at your scheduled appointment time.
