Pre-Health advising is part of the Pre-Graduate and Pre-Professional (PGPP) advisement team in the Georgia Tech Center for Career Discovery and Development. Advising is available to undergraduate and graduate students, alumni, and other members of the Georgia Tech community in face-to-face conversations or via phone or video chat.
To make an appointment with a pre-health advisor, go to GradesFirst. Select "pre-health” as your reason for the appointment and then choose from the available times.
Students with urgent questions are strongly encouraged to attend our daily drop-in hours without an appointment. Drop-in meetings are limited to 5-10 minutes so all students waiting can be seen.
Monday + Wednesday + Friday 8:30 AM - 9:30 AM
Tuesdays + Thursdays 3:30 PM - 4:30 PM
We are located in the Center for Career Discovery and Development (C2D2) on the main floor of the Bill Moore Student Success Center.
If you cannot find a suitable appointment time or attend drop-in hours, email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule an appointment.
Prepare for Your Appointment
Pre-Health Advising appointments are usually 45-60 minutes long. You can make the most of this time by gathering your thoughts and self-reflecting before the meeting. Here are some questions to consider before meeting with an advisor:
- What are my long-term goals? Have they changed since I last saw my advisor?
- Do I have a specific plan to reach my long-term goals? Am I on track to reach my goals?
- How are my academic, professional, and personal activities preparing me for my long-term goal?
- What specific questions or concerns do I have today?
- What do I hope to do, know, or understand as a result of my advising appointment?
Pre-Health Advising relies on peer advisors to communicate with students through our weekly digest and to help coordinate the activities of pre-health-related student groups through our Student Advisory Board. Questions related to application preparation are best directed to a professional advisor, but our peer advisors can assist with frequently asked questions and can provide a student’s perspective on coursework and support services on campus. Students can schedule an appointment with a peer advisor through GradesFirst. Select “pre-health—peer advisor” as your reason for the appointment and then select from the available times.
