Premedical & Health Professions Advising

Overview

If you have reached this site, you are interested in learning more about how RIT supports students and alumni who are interested in pursuing graduate careers in the health sciences. You have come to the right place. The Premedical and Health Professions Advisory Program provides the important information, guidance and assistance needed to complete the admissions requirements for graduate programs in the medical and health professions. These include doctoral programs in medicine (MD/DO), dentistry (DDS/DSM), pharmacy (PharmD), physical therapy (DPT), optometry (OD), podiatry (DPM), chiropractic (DC), and occupational therapy (OTD). They also include master’s level programs in physician assistant (PA), public health (MPH), genetic counseling, health systems administration, and pathologists’ assistant. The program also assists students seeking admission to accelerated nursing programs leading to the BS/RN degree.

The Premedical and Health Professions Advisory Program is NOT an academic program—students do not matriculate and earn a degree in this program. The services of this advisory program are available to all RIT students and RIT alumni regardless of their academic program.

There is no application process to benefit from the services of the Premedical and Health Professions Advisory Program. All RIT students and alumni receive support by simply enrolling in the program as soon as they realize that their goal is to become a healthcare provider.
Becoming a medical professional requires certain qualifications, including completing pre-requisite courses, earning good grades, acquiring pertinent experiences in the field, and developing key intrapersonal and interpersonal qualities. Members of the Premedical and Health Professions Advisory Program work with each student individually to help them earn the privilege of becoming a healthcare provider.
