Premed & Pre-Health Students

Premedical/pre-health advisers provide services for Harvard College students and alumni pursuing health-related fields: human medicine (allopathic medicine or osteopathic medicine), public and global health, dental medicine, veterinary medicine, nursing, and other health fields such as optometry, pharmacy, occupational therapy, and physical therapy.  Due to specific funding regulations arranged through Harvard College, OCS cannot offer Harvard Extension School students premedical and pre-health advising.
