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. These professional schools require 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.

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, a baccalaureate degree, and proficiency on a standard test as the minimum prerequisites for admission. Please see Academic Prerequisites.
