Pre-Health Check-Up

Pre-Health Check-Up logo

Pre-Health Check-Up is a fall 2022 pilot program in the College of Liberal Arts for students who are considering or planning toward a career in healthcare.  This is a drop-in service for students who want to check-up on their engagement with pre-health opportunities in order to build their resume, confirm their plans or consider which aspect of their development to focus on next.  We are here to provide support and encouragement to help you find your next step forward.

Pre-Health Check-Up is not designed to assist students with academic planning or long-term graduate school planning.  If you need help with academic questions, please make an appointment with your academic advisor at z.umn.edu/claappt. If you need help with long-term graduate school planning, please make an appointment with a career counselor at clacareer.appointments.umn.edu

Pre-Health Check-Up consultations are:

  • Free
  • Open to all CLA students
  • Offered in-person and virtually 
  • Intended to be short conversations

  • Students who would like to know how to get started as a pre-health student
