The mission of the Office of Medical Professions Advisement is to provide information, academic advisement, and other support functions to students who wish to apply for acceptance to professional schools in health-related disciplines. 

The Office of Medical Professions Advisement at ETSU will provide academic/personal advisement, access to professional school information, related workshops as well as other helpful resources to facilitate ETSU students in becoming competitive candidates for application to professional school.  All pre-professional programs are programs of study, not majors.  Therefore, pre-professional students must select a major and minor by the time 60 credit hours have been completed. 

Although some professional schools do not require a degree, we encourage all students to strive for the four-year degree while applying to their professional schools of choice.  The pre-professional student may choose from over one hundred undergraduate majors at ETSU.  Although many students pursue a math or science degree, it is not required.  Professional schools look for students that are well-rounded academically, socially and portray professional competence.

The Office of Medical Professions Advisement at ETSU operates under the auspices of the Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences at East Tennessee State University.  We are located on the main campus, inside the Advisement Resource Career Center (ARC), on the 2nd floor of the D.P. Culp Center.
