Welcome!

Thank you for your interest in the Pre-Health Advising Program at Auburn University.

 Our mission is:

  • to provide guidance to students who are interested in attending professional schools such as medical, dental, optometry, pharmacy, physical therapy and physician assistant.

 Students receive advice from professionally trained advisors as well as peer advisors who have successfully participated in the program.

 We help students assess:

  • their competitiveness for admission
  • offer advice concerning academic and entrance test preparation, research, obtaining clinical experience in their intended profession and engagement in volunteer and leadership activities                                                        .

Mrs. Beverley Childress is:
