    Welcome from the 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 (2010-2016) we successfully assisted 290 pre-health students (210 medical and 80 dental) with an average acceptance rate of 92% to medical school and an average acceptance rate of 75% to dental school. During the same time period, 71 students were admitted from YC to Albert Einstein College of Medicine.

    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. 

    We are located on the first floor of Furst Hall, Room 107A. My assistant and I are available via email as well. We also have a listserv (beaudrea@yu.edu) which you should join. 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.
