Health Career Information

Resources for students interested in health careers:

Enrolled students with a declared interest track in a pre-health science major should be in the Pre-Professional Programs group in Canvas, which is how information and announcements about upcoming events are communicated.

If you are interested in a health-related professional school after you graduate from UNCG, but your have not yet declared the pro-professional interest track of your choice, you may do so through this form, found on the Registrar’s site.

Pre-professional students will be assigned a second, pre-professional advisor to assist the with ensuring that they are meeting the academic and extracurricular requirements to build a competitive application to the professional school of their choice.

If you do not yet have an assigned pre-professional advisor, you may set up an appointment with either the Chair (Robin Maxwell) or Assistant Chair (Jeremy Ingraham).

There is a Health Careers bulletin board on the first floor hallway of the Sullivan Science Building where Robin Maxwell, Chair of the Health Careers Advisory Committee, posts items for students interested in health careers. It is suggested that you occasionally check this bulletin board when you are in the Sullivan Building.
