Pre-Health Advising’s Flipped Advising Model
Welcome to UF’s Pre-Health Advising! We’re thrilled to have you here. The Pre-Health Advising Team operates on a flipped advising model, which encourages students to complete prior research on their desired health profession before booking an appointment. This aids students in being able to gather information independently and bring higher-level questions and concerns to their advising appointments.
Please utilize the following Pre-Health Profession Tiles to conduct further research based on your aspiring health profession(s). Each tile includes a wealth of resources regarding higher educational degrees, job descriptions, suggested timelines, extracurricular opportunities, application and notes, specialty programs, and additional resources.

Pre-Health Advising Appointments
Pre-health advising is currently being offered via in-person or Zoom, Monday through Friday by appointment only. Please see the top of the Pre-Health homepage for the most up-to-date advising information, as well as how to make an appointment. If you have pre-health specific questions please log into the Qualtrics survey. You will be able to schedule an appointment after taking the survey.
If you have general advising questions (i.e. major specific, minors, forms, holds, petitions, change of major, double major, etc.) you should see a general advisor in your college. You are expected to bring the Pre-Health Action Plan with you to any advising session where you may want to discuss your professional development or competitiveness.
