Welcome Class of 2018!

Welcome to Johns Hopkins University and the Office of Pre-Professional Programs and Advising.  This is an exciting time as you embark on your college career and begin your journey through Johns Hopkins.  In the Pre-Prof. Office, as advisors and staff we are here to help you navigate your academic and co-curricular experience at Hopkins, and assist you in achieving your professional school goals.  Here are a few notes to get you started.

Guide One

If you are pursuing pre-med/health requirements (or even considering it), now is the time to download and read Guide One: Pre-Med and Pre-Health Planning at JHU (this publication will be available on or before June 1).  This guide includes an overview of pre-medical requirements, academic planning suggestions, advanced placement credit, covered grades, recommended courses, and more. It is essential that you download Guide One!

The Pre-Prof. Listserv

During the summer before you arrive on campus, you will automatically be put on the “medclass2018” listserv.  It is essential that all pre-med/health students at Hopkins be on the listserv to receive information on programs, events, class meetings, internships, volunteer opportunities, etc.  Accept invitation to join “Medclass2018”!

The Pre-Prof. Website

We encourage you to bookmark the Pre-Professional Office website and utilize the resources available throughout the site. 

The Pre-Prof. Newsletters

The Pre-Health e-Newsletter is a bi-weekly publication of the Pre-Professional Office. The issues regularly include upcoming events, featured health professions, myths vs. facts, and announcements. The Pre-Health Opportunities Newsletter highlights internships, employment, research opportunities, and community service experiences of interest to pre-health students. The editor of both publications is Ms. Katie Cruit.  

Pre-Health Planning Guides

Other health professions, such veterinary medicine, nursing, optometry, physical therapy, pharmacy, etc., are reviewed in Pre-Health Planning Guides available on the Pre-Professional website: http://web.jhu.edu/prepro/guides.html.  If your curious about academic planning for various health professions, this is the place to start.

First Time Appointments

As a freshmen interested in health professions, you will be attending a “First-Time Small Group Appointment” at some point your freshmen year.  This is the step you will take prior to scheduling your first individual appointment with an advisor. Information on signing up for a First-Time Small Group Appointment will arrive via the “medclass2018” listserv. 

Academic Support

It is essential that all pre-medical students develop good study habits and a college lifestyle that is conducive to academic achievement.  This includes setting aside time for studying, attending all of your classes, getting a good night’s sleep, and finding a balance between academics and extra-curricular activities.  Numerous on-campus resources are available if you need them, including Academic Advising, Engineering Advising, the Pre-Prof. Office, and the Counseling Center. 

Here are some other resources to be aware of:

•   PILOT Learning

•   Learning Den

•   Study Consulting

We wish you a great start at Hopkins and look forward to meeting you!
