Advising

Meet with an Advisor

Before meeting one-on-one with a Health Professions advisor, students must first attend a virtual group advising session. The USF Division of Health Professions Advising Office offers virtual group advising sessions run by Health Professions Advising Staff. Upcoming group advising sessions can be found on our event calendar on the home page of our website here.

During a group advising session, the presenters wiill discuss competitiveness, GPA, rigor of semester scheduling, extracurricular activities, healthcare experiences, preparation for entrance examination, and more. Additionally, the Health Professions Advisors are available at the end of the session to answer questions about recommendations to build competitiveness, major options, suggestions for extracurricular activities and any other questions you may have. 

Students must then fill out a survey before emailing Healthprofadvise@usf.edu to schedule an appointment. 

For more information regarding additional workshops, please visit our workshops page.

After attending group advising you have the opportunity to meet one-on-one with your Certified Health Professions Advisor. Students with certified advisors in their own major must meet with those advisors. For scheduling, email Healthprofadvise@usf.edu
