How Should I Be Preparing?
First Year Students
Students will be assigned a first year advisor within their respective college. We have recommended readings for your first year to prepare you on your Health Professions journey.
Students officially declare majors. Sophomores will meet with advisors to make sure they are on track with grades, research, service hours, etc. Will often want to talk about summer experiences and opportunities. In addition, students accepted into various study abroad programs will make appointments to ensure that they are meeting requirements for Pre Health and their major during their semester away. Meetings should be scheduled with Dr. Gursky.
Juniors & Seniors
Students will decide between attempting to enter a Health Professions school immediately after graduation, or if they will be taking a gap year. Advising meetings are typically scheduled with either Fr. Foster or Dr. Kolberg. Those who intend to matriculate immediately after graduation will initiate the process during their second semester of junior year, and will apply during the summer before senior year. Those taking one or multiple gap years will complete this process a year later, as seniors.
Graduate & Alumni
Graduate students and ND alumni can also utilize the advising services in our office. Those not located at ND can schedule phone interviews with our advisors and conduct the process remotely.
Dr. Kathleen Kolberg, Assistant Dean for Undergraduate Studies at the University of Notre Dame, shares her tips she gives as Adviser to students preparing for admission to health profession schools.
