PreMedicine & Health Professions Academic Advising

The Pre-Med and Health Professions Advising Program at Elizabethtown College seeks to guide students by emphasizing the courses and skills necessary for students to attain success in future health professions.  Because pre-med and health professions can be achieved through several science majors, a committee has been established comprised  of members from several academic departments to assist students pursuing health careers during their undergraduate years and help them navigate the application process for their professional health career.

Welcome!  The information on this site is designed to help Elizabethtown students and alumni plan for a successful application to a program in medicine, or an allied health field.  Specific information regarding the application process for these health professions can be found within this site.  In addition to utilizing the information in this site, it is important that you speak with a health professions advisor, if you have not already done so.  These advisors and their area of health professions advising are listed on the faculty page. 

If you are a prospective student or parent please visit our Overview section which we hope will answer your questions.  You are also welcome to review the rest of the site, as well.
