About Us

Pre-Health Career Advising is for all matriculated Cal Poly students and alumni who are pursuing or applying to graduate programs in the health professions. These include: medicine, dentistry, nursing, physician assistant, physical therapy, optometry, pharmacy, veterinary medicine, occupational therapy, chiropractic, podiatry, clinical lab science, genetic counseling, and public health. We see students regardless of major, provided they have this goal. ​

Peer Advisors​

The three peer advisors are current upper-division students currently in the process of working towards their health professional school goals. First and second-year students, as well as those who have just decided that they plan to pursue a career in healthcare, should meet with the peer advisors during their drop-in hours in fall, winter, and spring quarters.
