Pre-Health Orientations

Pre-Health students at the University of Houston are strongly encouraged to attend an orientation session presented by the staff of the Pre-Health Advising Center.

These presentations outline the function and purpose of our office, as well as details regarding the preparation and application process for the various health professions.

Orientation sessions are divided into two parts: Introductory and Applicant

Students are advised to attend both of the orientation sessions offered, unless they are already beginning the application process, in which case the Applicant Orientation would be more appropriate.

Our Introductory Orientations (designed for Freshman and Sophomores) provide students with information concerning credential building (pre-requisites, shadowing/volunteering, etc.) before applying to medical and dental school, allied-health programs (PA, PT, OT), and nursing school.
