Pre-Health Advising: Find Your Path

Whether you’re just beginning to explore, or are ready to apply to professional schools, you are welcome here.


Pathway through trees on the Lewis & Clark campus.

We help Lewis & Clark students—current, prospective, and alumni—explore possible pathways to health careers and develop a plan to get there. We offer support and guidance for every stage of your journey. You’ll be guided with coaching, feedback, and one-on-one advising. You will learn from the community through hands-on, interactive, and developmental workshops and events. You will explore the professional landscape through panels, networking, and mentoring. Your own health and wellness will be supported and cared for, too.

We hope you will take advantage of these opportunities, and, if you think of something we don’t currently offer, please drop us a line and let us know. We’re here for you. We look forward to working with you to help make your career aspirations come true.
