Student Coursework Recommendations

This Spring, the UNC Asheville Pre-health Advisory Committee in association with the Aspiring Healthcare Professionals (AHP) student group is hosting four pre-health group advising sessions. If you are interested in pursuing a career in healthcare, please plan to attend one of these events. Our goal is to help students successfully navigate the admissions requirements for all healthcare disciplines. Group advising events will provide information on coursework, volunteer resources, application requirements, and letters of recommendation, etc. Please plan to come to an advising session to have your pre-health questions answered.

If you missed the Pre-health advising sessions this Fall, please take a look at this “Introduction to Pre-Health Professions Resources at UNC Asheville” presentation.

Hope to see you soon!
