Wheaton College maintains an office dedicated to providing support services for pre-health professions students. The Health Professions Director provides one-on-one advising for all interested pre-health professions students. A credit-bearing course, Health Professions Seminar/Internship (Science 229), is offered to aid students with career definition. The Liberal Arts/Nursing (LA/N) major is administered by Health Professions.
For further information about the program consult the Wheaton College On-line Catalog
Students should initiate a visit with the Health Professions Director early in their undergraduate career. The initial appointment begins the journey of career exploration and the determination of possible pre-professional pathways. With self-assessment, students can consider whether they are well-suited for and whether their interests lie in a health profession which is patient-related (medicine, nursing) or health-care related (health systems management, medical informatics). The model for advising is shared responsibility and encouraging self-responsibility in pre-health professions students. The objective is to provide the resources for students to be able to make informed decisions regarding their pre-professional pathway.
To help students with the application process for admission to health professions schools, the following are offered:
- Application and Interviewing Workshops and Mock Interviews
- Campus visits from Admissions Officers of the health professions schools
- Resources on career choice, schools, and admissions requirements
- Opportunities for students to investigate the health profession of choice
- Letter Collection Service during the application cycle
