Health Professions Advising

Our talented team of health professions advisors supports post-baccalaureate and medical sciences graduate students throughout, and beyond, their program.

You can count on a team that stays abreast of current practices in medical school admissions and the admissions process to other health professions programs. 

In addition to peer-to-peer engagement, you will access workshops in the Professional Success in Medicine series and participate in individualized academic advising appointments with a post-bacc/graduate advisor.

During your second semester, you will meet individually with an advisor for timeline planning and discussions about how to increase your competitiveness for the medical school or health professions pathway of your choice. 

As part of the Clinical Practicum course, our team of advisors guide you in locating the best clinical experience, community service project or volunteer experience based on your long-term goals.

A unique feature of Agnes Scott’s post-baccalaureate pre-medical accelerated, pre-medical flex, pre-allied health programs and Master of Science in medical sciences programs is that every student has the opportunity to merit a committee letter.

Starting in their final spring semester, qualified students receive access to Interfolio to begin the process. Eligible students have access to the committee letter service for up to one year after completion of the program.
