Advising & Next Steps

Students who receive their MS in Physiology are prepared to go on to pursue further education in the health sciences or to enter the workforce. Students in our program receive world-class advising for the allied health professions, as well as career counseling from experienced professionals. 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 path a student chooses to pursue.

Medical/Dental/Allied Health Advising

The faculty and staff associated with the MS program are knowledgable in the application processes for medical and dental programs as well as PhD programs. The program includes both group-based advising and 1:1 advising from medical center faculty who are experienced interviewers for Georgetown University’s School of Medicine, and we work to get students into programs all over the country. We have no official linkage agreements, but we advise individual students on how to achieve their goals.

All students interested in pursuing medicine are required to take our Biomedical Career Pathways course as one of their electives. Biomedical Career Pathways consists of study skills workshops, presentations on the medical school application process and best practices for each piece of the application, interviewing skills workshops, presentations from medical school admissions officers on primary care medicine, military medicine, osteopathic medicine, and complementary and alternative medicine, as well as presentations on career pathways for specialty and subspecialty medical training. 

Next Steps: Alumni Success

We are dedicated to supporting our students in their pursuit of further education in the health sciences.
