Advising and the Health Professions Advisory Committee
The chair of the Health Professions Advisory Committee is the adjunct advisor for all students who have an interest in a career in any health care profession.
It is important that you attend the meeting with the chair of the Health Professions Advisory Committee during registration week to register with the chair and to receive timely announcements and advice as you continue your education at Sewanee.
Because there is no pre-med major at Sewanee, it is particularly important that you are advised by the Committee chair because many faculty in other departments, other than the science departments, are not as familiar with the course requirements of the various health profession schools that you may decide to attend.
It is imperative that you begin the correct course selection during your first semester on campus. For those students planning to attend a health professional school other than medical school, it will be helpful for you to narrow your choice of schools to five or less professional schools; you will find that the courses that are required for admission vary greatly from school to school.
