The College of Science and Health's (CSH) Office of Advising and Student Services' pre-health advisors and the Pre-health Advising Committee (PAC) offer specialized advising for any DePaul student interested in pursuing a graduate health professions program.
The pre-health advisors and the PAC are the two primary supports for pre-health advising in the CSH. The pre-health advisors and PAC pride themselves on mentoring and advising pre-professional students on how to become competitive applicants to professional programs.
At DePaul University, pre-health is not considered a major, minor, or concentration, therefore, any student in any major is able to REGISTER for the Pre-Health Program and start taking advantage of its benefits.
The pre-health advisors in the Office of Advising and Student Services are committed to advising students who are interested in entering a health profession. During your visit with the pre-health advisor, you will be empowered to design a pre-professional program that fulfills admissions requirements, volunteer requirements, and shadowing requirements to be considered a strong applicant to professional school. Any Pre-health Program student or recent alumni (within three years of degree conferral date) from DePaul University can get advice and support from the pre-health advisors. The pre-health advisors can counsel you in a variety of ways:
After you have been registered as a Pre-Health Program student, earned at least C grades in each general biology and general chemistry course, including labs, earned at least 32 credit hours in residence at DePaul University, and achieved at least a cumulative 3.00 GPA, you are eligible for services from the Pre-health Advising Committee (PAC). Exceptions to these criteria will be evaluated by the pre-health advisor on a case-by-case basis, and be referred to the PAC for consideration.
The benefits of the PAC include:
