Medical Applicant Portal

Undergraduate students and alumni from all of Northeastern’s colleges across the global campus network, and students enrolled in the Northeastern University’s Post-Baccalaureate Pre-Medical Certificate Program, have the ability to engage with our program and advisors as they explore their professional interests in healthcare and medicine.

What is Medical Applicant Portal (MAP)?

In order to indicate a PreMed or PreHealth Pathway at Northeastern University students must create a Medical Applicant Portal (MAP). Medical Applicant Portal (MAP) is an online resource for Northeastern undergraduate students and alumni, and students enrolled in our Post-Baccalaureate Pre-Medical Certificate to declare a PreMed and PreHealth Pathway. Simply creating a MAP profile will subscribe you to our program’s communications, provide an ongoing space for you to develop a portfolio of PreMed/PreHealth experiences, and store application materials. New students are encouraged to utilize MAP throughout their PreMed/PreHealth journey, but are not expected to complete MAP until closer to application to their health professional program.

Through MAP, advisors help guide students along their journey to medicine and partner with applicants to ensure the most competitive application possible. MAP is for Northeastern use only; it is not your health professional school application, and it doesn’t commit you to apply. You may register for your MAP account via the resources page on Student Hub or directly at the following link: Medical Applicant Portal (New User Registration).


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.


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.


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