The Johns Hopkins University Office of Pre-Professional Programs and Advising serves full-time undergraduates and alumni of the full-time programs in the Krieger School of Arts & Sciences and the Whiting School of Engineering who are seeking careers in healthcare and law. As alumni, you are fully eligible for both in-person and phone appointments with an advisor. Go to Schedule an Appointment.
Medicine and Other Health Professions
In the case of medical and dental school applicants who are or were undergraduates of Whiting and Krieger Schools, the Office prepares a Committee Letter to accompany individual letters of recommendation. The Committee Letter presents a composite of the applicant’s accomplishments, individual strengths, attributes and competencies. To be eligible for a Committee Letter, the candidate must have:
- completed a minimum of six premedical requirements at Johns Hopkins
- at least one year of medically-related experience and/or community/public service
- have met the submission deadlines as established by the Pre-Professional Office
Undergraduates and alumni of the Whiting and Krieger Schools who are pursuing careers in health professions other than medicine and dentistry (e.g., nursing, veterinary medicine, pharmacy, and public health) are provided full advising services. Applying to these other health professions does not involve a Committee Letter.
Full-time alumni from the Krieger School of Arts & Sciences and the Whiting School of Engineering who pursuing law school in can take advantage of similar services including one-on-one pre-professional planning, workshops and programs, and advising and assistance through the application process.
Since many of our programs and information sessions take place on the Homewood campus, we take extra care make the majoritiy of information available on the Pre-Prof. website. We hope that our website is helpful in navigating your way through Johns Hopkins and the road to your professional aspirations. The law school application process does not involve a Committee Letter.
