Services We Offer

The Health Professions Advising Office (HPAO) offers advising throughout the year for CSULB students and alumni considering professional training in healthcare. We advise students at all stages of the health professions planning process, from career exploration through the interview.

Drop-In Advising

After attending a Pre-Health 101 session, students may attend drop-in advising for individual quick questions in the Health Professions Advising Office. Drop-in advising is available Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Times and dates will be posted on HPAO BeachSync.

Appointments

Appointments are ONLY for juniors and seniors currently in the upcoming application cycle. If you are applying in the upcoming cycle to medical, dental, PA, OT, or optometry programs, you can schedule an appointment. Appointments are available Mondays and Thursdays. All other students are invited to attend group advising and workshops.

We provide a wide range of guidance designed to meet the needs of CSULB students as they navigate through the often-complex process of preparation and application to professional school:

  • Health Professions Guidance
  • Application Guidance

Limited Services
