Health Professions

Wesleyan's open curriculum is a great fit for our health professions oriented students because it allows them to broaden their academic scope while developing a strong foundation in the sciences and preparing for the humanistic aspects of healthcare while learning about the social issues that impact the health of individual patients and communities. Health Professions Advising offered in the Gordon Career Center serves current students and alumni who are considering health professions such as medicine, dentistry, nursing, physician assistant, optometry, pharmacy, veterinary medicine, physical therapy, public health, and other related professions. The Health Professions Advisor and Program Coordinator, Mildred Rodríguez, assists students and alumni as they prepare for entrance to professional schools by offering opportunities to explore interests, skills, and goals. Many resources are available including individual advising, workshops, information sessions, competencies assessment, personal statement review, and mock medical interviews to prepare applications for the professional schools' admissions process. To view the health professions admissions outcomes here at Wesleyan, please click HERE.
