Pre-Professional Advising

Pre-Professional Advising programs provide recommendations for meeting undergraduate requirements, suggestions for advancement to graduate study, and other guidance for students who intend to pursue a career in one of the fields listed below:

Pre-Allied Health Professions Advising

The Pre-Allied Health Professions Advising program provides guidance to students who are interested in a career in the allied health professions. Some examples of allied health professionals include nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, physical therapists, nuclear medicine technologists, pharmacists, pharmaceutical scientists, medical technologists, cytotechnologists, exercise physiologists, public health administrators, biotechnologists, etc. Stonehill College has affiliation agreements with certain professional programs that may help you accomplish your goals. Students are not obligated to attend our affiliated schools and are welcome to apply to the programs of their choice. Pre-Allied Health Professions Advising will assist in the selection of appropriate pre-requisite courses and recommend others that are beneficial to applicants.

For more information on Pre-Allied Health Advising, contact Sheila Barry, Assistant Professor of Biology and Pre-Allied Health Professions Advisor.

Pre-Health Professions Advising

The Pre-Health Professions Advising program provides guidance to those students who intend on pursuing a career as an allopathic (MD) or osteopathic (DO) physician, dentist, optometrist, podiatrist, chiropractor, or veterinarian. Stonehill does not offer a major in any one of the pre-health disciplines. Instead, students planning on pursuing a career in any of the health professions most commonly major in one of the sciences (Biochemistry, Biology, Chemistry, or Neuroscience). However, choosing to major in a non-science discipline is certainly a viable option. Regardless of the major you choose, what is important is that you take the appropriate tests (MCAT, DAT, or OAT) or other prerequisites for the professional schools to which you intend to apply.
