Advising

Students who receive their MS in Physiology are prepared to enter the work force, or go on to pursue further education.  Students in our program receive world class advising for the allied health profession, as well as career counseling.  All students who matriculate into the program are assigned a letter writer, who will write a letter of recommendation to any schools applied to, as well as act as a reference for any jobs applied to.  We work very hard to give the most current and up to date advising possible, for whatever their needs are.

Career Counseling:
All biomedical graduate students have access to our Office of Career Services.  This office is designed to help students network, find jobs, and be prepared for the application process.  There are workshops for CV writing, interview skills, as well as many other services.  Free headshots are available to all students as well.  More information about this great resource can be found here:

Medical/Dental/allied health advising:
The faculty and staff associated with the MS program are extensively trained in the medical school and dental school application process. We give the most current advice possible. The program includes both group-based advising and 1:1 advising from medical center faculty who are experienced interviewers for Georgetown University's Medical School.  

All students interested in pursuing medicine are encouraged to take our Biomedical Career Pathways course.  Biomedical Career Pathways is a seminar-style course, which consist of presentations on study and survival skills for students pursuing biomedical careers and alternative pathways for careers in medicine. Students attend study skills workshops, interviewing skills workshops, presentations on military medicine, primary care medicine, osteopathic medicine, and complementary and alternative medicine, as well as presentations on career pathways for specialty and subspecialty medical training. 

We work to get students into programs all over the county.  We have no official linkage programs, but we work with individual students to get them where they want to go!
