NOTE: Colorado College is responding to Coronavirus (COVID-19) developments. Block 7 and 8 classes are being delivered via distance learning. Admission open houses and visits are canceled. See Coronavirus Updates & Resources here.
Preparation for a career in the health professions has been a tradition at Colorado College for many years. The liberal arts education you obtain at CC will be an advantage at most schools, especially medical schools.
How may the Health Professions Advising Office help you?
The Health Professions Advising Office, located in the Olin Hall Fishbowl, is a place that you should visit even if you are just beginning to consider a career in the health professions. Although most are interested in becoming physicians, more students each year show interest in other careers, such as dentistry, physician’s assistant programs, physical therapy, or veterinary medicine. You will find reading material of interest, including magazines, reference books, books on preparing for health profession schools, health profession school catalogs and pamphlets, and more.
Jane Byrnes, MSA, pre-health advisor, strongly encourages that you meet with her early in your CC career as soon as you begin considering a career in a health profession. She will provide resources and guidance to help you to decide if this is the right career path for you.
