Welcome to Pre-health Advisement

Welcome from the Executive Director of Pre-Health Advisement

Welcome to Yeshiva College! The Pre-health Office looks forward to helping you prepare for an exciting and challenging career in the health professions. Over the past seven years (2013-2019) we have successfully assisted 295 pre-health students (200 medical and 95 dental). During the same time period, 55 students were admitted from YC to the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. In 2019 we had an acceptance rate of 91% to medical school (29 acceptances for 32 applicants) and an acceptance rate of 90% to dental school (9 acceptances for 10 applicants)! The national average is 45%.

To begin this process, you should visit our office as soon as you arrive on campus. Together we will create a polished and professional profile that will represent you well as you apply for training programs in medicine, dentistry, optometry, podiatry, or veterinary medicine.

The Pre-Health Office is located in Room 107A on the first floor of Furst Hall. My assistant and I are available via email as well. We also have a listserve which you should join by emailing beaudrea@yu.edu. It will provide you with the most up-to-date information about events, volunteer opportunities, and extracurricular activities that would be of interest to your educational and professional goals.

Your dual curriculum is a challenging one! As a result, you will find yourself well-prepared for a rigorous course of study in your chosen field of study. Working together we can help you prepare a schedule each semester that will be competitive yet realistic.

The Pre-health Office is here to help you reach your goals. Make use of all that YC has to offer and gain the skills and confidence you need to move forward successfully.
