Alumni Advising

Students cheering at graduation in Camp Randall stadium

As a UW-Madison alum, you have access to all the advising services the Center for Pre-Health Advising offers for as long as you need them! 

Whether you are progressing on a path you planned as an undergraduate or shifting to a field you discovered late in college or after graduating, we are eager to work with you as you continue to take steps toward a health profession. It is not uncommon for people to decide on a health profession after gaining experience in another field.

Let’s talk!
