The Center for Health Sciences Advising provides programming, direct advising, and assistance to all Notre Dame students and alumni applying to health profession schools. The Center also manages application recommendation packets for prospective students and alumni.
The Center, located in the Jordan Hall of Science, maintains a resource room with information about professional schools, including admissions requirements, and holds a series of training meetings to help undergraduates navigate the process of applying to medical, dental, and other schools.
On average, more than three-fourths of all Notre Dame applicants to M.D. or D.O. programs are accepted. The average Notre Dame applicant has a MCAT above the national average.
Science preprofessional, biological sciences, and arts and letters pre-health are the most prevalent majors among those applying to advanced study in the health professions. Students from every major in the College of Science, College of Arts and Letters, and College of Engineering apply to health profession schools. Recently, a few students from the College of Business have decided to pursue medicine, as well.
Current Notre Dame students can receive announcements about Center events and notifications by joining the Health Professions Group on InsideND. Resources on campus, including the Center for Social Concerns and the Career Center, help student identify volunteer and research opportunities in their fields.
