Current Penn State students who wish to schedule a meeting with an adviser need to obtain a prehealth referral in Starfish. A referral is awarded by attending a group advising session or by watching a recording of the session and completing a reflection (currently through SharePoint).

The Prehealth Advising team is here to help you on your journey to becoming the health-care provider you wish to be. Each student's journey is their own and unlike any other student's. We hope these resources are helpful, and desire to meet with you individually to discuss your specific needs and path.
