The Center for Health Sciences Advising provides programming, direct advising, and assistance to all Notre Dame students and alumni applying to health profession schools. The Center also manages application recommendation packets for prospective students and alumni.

The Center is located at 219 Jordan Hall of Science. We maintain a resource room with information about professional schools, including admissions requirements, and holds a series of training meetings to help undergraduates navigate the process of applying to medical, dental, and other schools.

Please familiarize yourself with Fr. Foster, Dr. Kathleen Kolberg, and Dean Dawson, as these 3 professionals will write what we call a committee letter at the end of the health profession journey for you.
