Many students at Elon are interested in pursuing one of the health professions after graduation. Dr. Caroline Ketcham, the Program Director for Health Professions Advising, and Elon's Health Professions Advisory Committee, offer information, advice and support to students as they plan their curriculum, seek health-related internships and work through the application process for an array of graduate schools in the health professions (medicine, dental, veterinary, physical therapy, physician assistant, nursing, occupational therapy, public health, clinical psychology, and many more). A supplement to the student’s academic advisor, the health professions advisors work one-on-one with students as well as offer workshops and programs of interest to pre-professional students.

This program is designed to help students identify and take responsibility for an academic path which:

  • provides a foundational liberal arts education
  • helps them explore, nurture, and expand their interests
  • helps them identify their strengths and weakness and set plans to work on both
  • guides them to experiences that help build or expand their passions
  • provides guidance so they can hit developmental and procedural milestones and be prepared to apply for graduate and professional programs

If you are not sure which health career interests you and want to explore your options visit ExploreHealth Careers.org, which offers a great deal of excellent information on a wide variety of health careers.

Health Professions information

The best way to get information about Health Professions information is the Lincoln Pre-Health Society facebook page and Moodle page. In addition, there is a Health Professions Library on the 2nd floor of Koury Athletic right near Dr. Ketcham's office (Koury athletic rm. 246).
