Advising Resources for Students

NAAHP has created resources for students, particularly for those who have no other access to advising support.  NAAHP National Office does not have health professions advisors on staff to provide personalized advising to students.


NAAHP members are health professions advisors at institutions throughout the country.  If you see your current institution or alma mater listed in our institutions database, you can be assured there is an advisor at your institution and is committed to staying informed so they can be as helpful as possible for their students. 


We have created a few resources to help you learn how to partner with a health professions advisor during your health professions journey.

Finding Advising Support

Step 1:  If you are a current student or recent graduate (past 5 years), check the Health Professions (Premedical) Advising Office website of your college/university for contact information and to determine if the office advises alumni.  If you are eligible for advising through your home institution, you should contact that office for advising assistance.


Step 2:  Check to see if your college/university has any NAAHP member advisors by using our “Find An Existing Advisor At Your Institution.” If there is a NAAHP member advisor at your institution, contact them directly for advising assistance.

Step 3:  If your college/university does not have any premedical/health professions advisors or does not provide advising assistance to alumni, then you can request support from our Find A Volunteer Advisor program.  We appreciate thoughtful completion of the form to include your resume/CV and detailed questions that are wanting assistance answering. NAAHP Volunteer Advisors practice a strict professional courtesy policy and if your institution has a Health Professions Advisor, you will be referred to them for assistance.
