Group & Individual Advising


To provide the best guidance to students and alumni, Health Careers Advising offers information sessions, group and individual advising that address all aspects of the preparation for study and careers in health and medicine. To make the best use of the resources at your disposal we invite you to follow these steps. 

STEP 1 All newly-admitted students interested in the health professions attend the Health Careers Orientation we will run on Thursday, September 17 from 1:30 to 2:30pm. Register for this Zoom session on the day of the day of the orientation. 

STEP 2 First-Year and Sophomore students start by attending the information sessions for their respective class years. Juniors, Seniors and Alumni preparing for the application process attend the applicant seminars during the academic year leading to their application.

STEP 3 We encourage all students to attend/tune in to the Health Careers Advising Bonanza offered four times per year at the beginning of each semester and just before course registration period.  A number of other health careers programs are offered throughout the year. 

STEP 4 Individual advising is available with Deans George Vassilev and Anja Lee, as well as with the Health Careers Peer Advisors. Students can talk with us via Zoom during the drop-in hours posted below. At present we won't arrange appointments. 

First-Year and Sophomore students connect with Anja Lee 
Juniors, Seniors and Alumni connect with George Vassilev.

First-Year and Sophomore students who would like input from both Deans Vassilev and Lee, please copy both of us on the same email. For general questions email [email protected]
