Health Professions Advisory Services

Mission Statement

The Queens College Health Professions Advisory Services Office provides advice to students who plan to apply to one of the following health professional schools: medicine, dentistry, optometry, podiatry, veterinary medicine. Many of these professional schools prefer a Queens College Application Committee Letter. With frequent student meetings between Advisor and student, the Health Advisor is better able to write your Application Committee Letter. Applicants are encouraged to meet with an advisor even if the applicant will not submit a Committee Letter with the application.

To become a practitioner in any health profession, a student usually completes pre-professional studies at a four-year college or university, and then applies for admission to an accredited professional school. The length of professional training varies according to profession and degree of specialization.

The health careers listed above currently require that a student demonstrate a strong academic foundation, have a baccalaureate degree, and show competitive proficiency on a standard test as the minimum prerequisites for admission. Please call the Office to schedule a meeting with the Pre Health Advisor.
