Our mission is to assist and support students in a holistic process of education and preparation to achieve the most competitive application for admission as is possible by the individual student.
We advise all UF students who are interested in pursuing careers in medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine, optometry, pharmacy, physician assistant, physical therapy, and occupational therapy.
Regular advising hours:
- M, Tu, Th, F: 8:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.
- W: 1:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m.
*Walk-in and phone advising are generally for advising questions of 15 minutes or less. If you have numerous or lengthy questions please schedule an appointment. Advisors will make every effort to see all students who sign in. However, we reserve the right to stop accepting walk-in students depending on the number of students already waiting and the amount of time left in the walk-in shift. If you arrive later in the shift you may be instructed to return on a different day.
Phone Advising (non-peak times only)
We are not currently offering phone advising. If you are a current UF student not in Gainesville and need to speak with a Pre-Health advisor you can call (352) 273-4083 to schedule a phone appointment. Incoming and non-UF students may email a Pre-Health advisor.
Second – Fourth Year Students: Call (352) 273-4083 to schedule an appointment. The pre-health assistant is generally available for scheduling appointments from 8:00-11:30 and 1:30-4:00 M, T, Th, and F or 10:00-11:30 and 12:30-5:00 on Wednesdays. We do not make appointments during drop/add and advance registration. You are expected to have your Pre-Health Action Plan at all appointments.
Advisors are available to answer your Pre-Health related questions via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. For general academic advising questions please email an advisor in your college. Students in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences may email email@example.com or use this form. Under Florida law, e-mail addresses are public records. If you do not want your e-mail address released in response to a public records request, do not send electronic mail to this entity. Instead, contact this office by phone or in writing.
