Pre-Med

Welcome to the Adams House pre-med/pre-health advising team! We are here to support Adams students who are interested in careers in the health professions. Many students will utilize our support when they apply to medical school, and we also encourage all students to think about the many ways they can become health care providers, like nursing, dentistry, becoming a physicians' assistant, veterinary medicine, physical therapy, and more. Whatever your interests, please feel free to email adams-medical@hcs.harvard.edu to set up a meeting with one of the tutors.

Every year, students interested in the health professions are strongly encouraged to fill out the pre-med/pre-health info form. The Fall 2015 form can be found here.

When you are ready to apply to medical school, please fill out our annual Intent to Apply form. The Spring 2016 form can be found here. For the 2016 application cycle (for matriculation in fall 2017), the deadline for the Intent to Apply form is due Monday, April 4, 2016.

Below, please find several important documents:

-Fall meeting handout - an overview of Adams premed advising
