Pre-Health Advising

Pre-Health Advising

Pre-health advising at Butler University is geared toward undergraduate students (and recent alumni) who intend to apply to a graduate level health professional school. This advising is performed by designated faculty advisors. Pre-health faculty advisors serve as a second academic advisor, making sure that you understand which Butler courses you need to take in order to satisfy prerequisites for your professional health school of choice. In addition to academic advising, we provide information on selecting and applying to professional schools.
