What kind of advising will I receive?
As a pre-health profession student, you can choose or be assigned to a faculty advisor, some of whom have decades of experience working with pre-professional students.
Will there be a club of like minded students?
Will I be able to observe/shadow and intern with practitioners?
Yes! The Pre-Health Professions Advisory Board has a prestigious list of members who are available for mentoring and shadowing opportunities. You may also approach another health-care professional of your own choosing.
Will I be taking special classes?
The biology and chemistry departments at CSS offer phenomenal classes and instructors that will prepare you for graduate school. Each graduate school has different course requirements for acceptance. Your pre-professional advisor will help you to enroll in the specialty course offered at CSS that best suites your grad school requirements.
Is there a disadvantage if I start at a school without the actual professional schools on the campus?
There are no disadvantages to attending a school that does not have a professional school. CSS has numerous benefits that many schools in our region do not provide. CSS graduates pre-health professional students every year who are accepted into medical, veterinary and pharmacy colleges nationwide.
Are there study sessions for the MCAT/PCAT/VCAT test?
Some study sessions are coordinated with the Pre-Med Club, but students are encouraged to take responsibility for studying independently as well or to investigate a commercial test-preparation program.
