Prehealth Advising

2023-2024 Prehealth Liaisons

Prehealth Advising at Pomona College provides guidance and resources to students and alumni interested in pursuing a career in healthcare.  We work closely with students to explore different healthcare careers and to tailor academic schedules to meet prerequisites of health profession schools. Prehealth Advising assists students seeking research and clinical opportunities to gain insights and experience.

We encourage students to take advantage of the exceptional education and opportunities that Pomona College offers:

  • Pomona’s preeminent science departments have close faculty/student interactions with extensive laboratory experience. Many students find research opportunities on campus through SURP. Our liberal arts education encourages exploration of health sciences from both a scientific and humanistic perspective, developing the holistic applicant that medical schools seek.
  • On campus, prehealth students form a close-knit and supportive community led by our student Liaisons. There are many opportunities to get involved in activities that align with your interests such as prehealth clubs, volunteering, and community engagement programs. We also encourage prehealth students to study abroad to enhance their understanding of other people and cultures.
  • The Los Angeles area provides students with many research and clinical opportunities serving a diverse population. Students can take advantage of nearby research centers such as City of Hope or gain clinical experience by volunteering at local hospitals and clinics.
  • Strong networking opportunities exist when Pomona alumni reach back to help a fellow Sagehen.

When you’re ready to apply to a professional school, our Prehealth Advising office will support you through the process. We offer the advantage of a committee letter for medical and dental school applications and conduct a year-long, high-touch advising process that includes reviewing and assessing applicant materials and readiness.

We encourage you to Explore, Prepare and Apply with us.
