Medical Applicant Portal

Medical Applicant Portal (MAP) is an online resource for Northeastern students and alumni to identify themselves to the PreMed and PreHealth Advising Program, receive information and updates, develop a portfolio of activities and experiences, and collect letters of evaluation and application materials.

Through MAP, advisors help guide students along their journey to medicine and partner with applicants to ensure the most competitive application possible. Having a MAP account assures that you have identified yourself as either currently planning and preparing for a future career as a healthcare professional or exploring the possibility of a medical career. MAP is for Northeastern use only; it is not your medical school application and it doesn’t commit you to apply. You may register for your MAP account directly via your myNortheastern.


Communication

The MAP interface allows the PreMed and PreHealth Advising Program to be in touch with students and applicants. Make sure your information, including “Year Entering Health Program” and “Health Discipline” is up-to-date to ensure you’re receiving applicable email communications from the PreMed and PreHealth Advising Program.

Preparation

A lot of information will be required on your application. Use MAP to keep track of your activities and experiences at the end of each semester. By keeping track of information as you progress, you will be better prepared to complete your application.

Applying

Use MAP to gather and organize materials for your application so you are fully prepared before the centralized application opens. This helps to facilitate applying early, which is essential!

For Pre-Med and Pre-Dental students, MAP is a required part of the Committee Letter process. The PreMed and PreHealth Advising Program uses all the information you have submitted in MAP when writing your Committee Letter. One way for you to have a positive impact on your Committee Letter is to provide us with thorough information on MAP. Your completed Self-Assessment and Letters of Evaluation will also be submitted via MAP. Learn more about Committee Letter requirements here.
