MANDATORY attendance is required at this group advising meeting for any current UMBC freshman or freshman-transfer student who is interested in attending medical, dental, optometry, podiatry, or veterinary school after graduating from UMBC.
This meeting will address pre-professional specific advising issues for freshmen such as professional school prerequisite courses, grades, standardized exams, gaining research, clinical, and leadership experience. Between now and April, freshmen should acquire a working knowledge of the information on the PreMedical and PreDental Advising Office's website. All freshmen students interested in attending medical, dental, optometry, podiatry, or veterinary school after they graduate from UMBC, are required to attend.
Pre-professional students have TWO advisors--an Assigned Academic/Major Advisor and a supplemental, pre-professional advisor. Please read about the differences between your TWO advisors here.
This session will be conducted two times. The same content will be covered in both sessions. There is no need to RSVP. Please save one of these dates on your calendar. More updates will be posted to the News section of the office's website as we get closer to November.
