Are you interested in pre-health, pre-law or pre-medicine? Post-Graduate Planning and Experiential Education has dedicated pre-professional advisors to help you in your search, application and post-graduate decision-making.

At the end of Discover Week, there will be two opportunities to meet with the pre-professional advisors and learn about the resources they offer:

Pre-law Information Session

Pre-med/ Pre-Health Information Session

Friday, Aug. 26 | 9 to 10:30 a.m. | Allen Memorial Medical Library, Ford Auditorium

Students interested in pursuing a healthcare path (medicine, dentistry, physician assistant, etc.) should attend this informative session designed to help students create goals for their education at CWRU and beyond.

About pre-professional advising at CWRU

Pre-health - Healthcare is one of the most emergent and dynamic career fields an individual can enter. It is also a demanding one that requires a lot of planning and exploration. Health field options include allied health (physical therapy, occupational therapy, audiology, speech pathology and anesthesiologist assistant), dentistry, optometry, pharmacy, physician assistant and veterinary medicine.

Pre-law - A JD, or Juris Doctor, can lead to a variety of law-related fields and can open doors to careers in government, business, nonprofit and higher education. Law schools now specialize with concentrations in intellectual property, entertainment, immigration, environmental, health, international law and many other areas.

Pre-medicine - There are two types of physicians with corresponding degrees: MD (allopathic medicine) and DO (osteopathic medicine). Both types of physicians address patients’ medical histories, promote preventative medical behaviors, diagnose injuries and illnesses, and employ similar methods of treatment (e.g. pharmaceutical and surgical). Students are encouraged to investigate both approaches to medicine in order to make an informed decision on which path they should pursue.
