Health Professions Advising
Health Professions Advising encompasses a range of services offered through the Center for Student Success to enhance the experiences of LMU students who aspire to attend a health professional school.
Our intention is to support LMU students that are committed to lives of meaning and purpose who wish to serve the public, promote health, and improve healthcare for all. We encourage students to integrate into their academic plan skills and competencies that will help them become life-long learners.
Our services and activities include:
- Workshops, panels, and seminars
- Advising and mentorship
- Guest speakers from various health professional schools throughout the country
- Advice on seeking out the extracurricular activities needed to apply to health professional school
- Course planning
- Guidance during the application process
- Formalized application evaluations for students applying to medical and dental schools
