The Pre-Health Advising Office at the University of Georgia (located in 164 Psychology Building) has a strong history of support for students by helping them remain nationally competitive with other universities by providing the necessary tools and resources for admission into medical, dental, and optometry schools as well as allied-health and nursing programs.
The office counsels and works directly with UGA students and alumni, providing guidance with the professional school application process. The Pre-Health Advising Office also works closely with UGA staff and faculty advisors who assist students with UGA course registration.
In 2016, approximately 226 UGA students matriculated into more than 50 medical schools nationwide. Approximately 10-20 students matriculate each year to osteopathic medical schools and approximately 8-12 to Caribbean medical schools. Several have been accepted to MD-PhD programs such as Yale School of Medicine, University of Virginia School of Medicine, George Washington School of Medicine and Health Sciences, Weill Medical College of Cornell University, Stanford University School of Medicine, Emory University and Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.
The Pre-Health Advising Office is a unit of the Office of Instruction.
