About Us

The PreMed and PreHealth Advising Program is a specialized advising unit operating under The Office of the Provost at Northeastern University. PreMed and PreHealth Advising exists to support undergraduate students and alumni from across the university’s global campus network, and students and alumni enrolled in the Northeastern University’s Post-Baccalaureate Pre-Medical Certificate Program, on their pathway to medical school, dental school, physician assistant school, podiatry school, optometry school, and veterinary school.


The mission of the PreMed and PreHealth Advising Program at Northeastern University is to provide support services for current students and alumni across our global network who are seeking careers as future physicians, physician assistants, dentists, podiatrists, optometrists, and veterinarians. Our professional pre-health advising team is equipped to support students through the exploration, preparation, application, and decision-making process of matriculation to a health professional graduate program. Through individualized and cohort-based advising, innovative programming, emphasis on experiential learning, and collaboration with campus and community partners, we are committed to cultivating an inclusive pre-health learning community and empowering applicants to reach their fullest potential. 


The vision of the PreMed and PreHealth Advising Program at Northeastern University is to be a beacon of excellence in premedical education, creating a nurturing and inclusive environment that empowers aspiring medical professionals to achieve their dreams and make a significant impact in healthcare and beyond. We strive to create a close-knit community where every premedical student feels valued, respected, and embraced for their unique backgrounds and perspectives. By cultivating a supportive network across our global campuses, we seek to empower our students to collaborate, learn from one another, and build lifelong connections that extend far beyond their time at our institution. We aim to inspire intellectual curiosity, critical thinking, and a passion for lifelong learning.

In essence, our vision is to create a premedical education ecosystem that not only increases acceptance rates to health professional school but also fosters a sense of belonging and enhances the overall pre-health student experience. By doing so, we aspire to shape a new generation of compassionate, skilled, and culturally competent healthcare leaders who will positively transform the healthcare landscape and make a profound difference in the lives of countless individuals worldwide.
