Advising

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. 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 experienced 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, 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 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. 

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 the Office of Career Services
