Pre-Professional Advising and Communities

Pre-Professional Advising & Communities

Pre-Professional Advising through the Center for Advising Resources and Support (CARS) offers guidance and services to students who are interested in pursuing admission to professional programs in the health sciences or law following their undergraduate studies. It is intended to help students navigate undergraduate prerequisites, build a strong application profile for a professional program, and explore and prepare for professional programs in the health sciences and law.

In addition to preparation for the professional health and law programs offered at Creighton University (Dentistry, Law, Medicine, Occupational Therapy, Pharmacy, Physical Therapy, Physician Assistant) students receive support for a variety of additional professional programs, including but not limited to chiropractic medicine, genetic counseling, optometry, podiatry, public health, and veterinary medicine.

The Center for Advising Resources and Support (CARS) also coordinates a series of pre-professional communities. Our Pre-Professional Communities bring together students with shared academic interests in health and legal careers. These sequential seminars build upon each other throughout each year of a student’s undergraduate program to progressively provide students with the information, knowledge, and resources they need on their path to professional school. Through both in-person classes and online modules, the seminars assist students in exploring health and legal career options, gaining experience in their chosen profession, and preparing for the professional school application process.

The Pre-Professional Communities are:

  • PDDS: Pre-Dental Seminar
  • PHLC: Pre-Health Seminar
  • PLAW: Pre-Law Information Community
  • PMED: Pre-Medical Seminar
  • POPT: Pre-Occupational Therapy Seminar
  • PRX: Pre-Pharmacy Seminar
