Description & Coverage
Description:

Despite significant demand for healthcare professionals in the workforce, admission to health professional graduate programs is highly competitive with less than half of all medical school applicants gaining admission annually. The application process is nuanced, complex, and costly, which can often be a significant barrier to otherwise highly qualified students, particularly those from backgrounds underrepresented in the healthcare workforce. Further understanding of the best practices in navigating the application processes, academia, and professional development is crucial for those advising pre-health students.

The Handbook of Research on Advising and Developing the Pre-Health Professional Student considers current practices and research regarding academic and extracurricular preparation of undergraduate students who wish to enter health professions and offers new pre-health professional advisors as well as more seasoned advisors and other administrators a resource to assist them in their professional journey. Covering a range of topics such as advisor relationships and lifelong learning skills, this major reference work is ideal for advisors, healthcare professionals, academicians, researchers, practitioners, scholars, instructors, and students.

Coverage:

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Advisor Relationships
  • Competency
  • Digital Health Literacy
  • Genetic Counseling
  • Lifelong Learning Skills
  • Occupational Therapy
  • Patient Care Exposure
  • Physical Therapy
  • Pre-Health Advising
  • Professionalism
  • Speech-Language Pathology
  • Systemic Racism
Reviews & Statements

"Applications to health professional programs are costly and time-sensitive. Without proper advising and developmental support, students, particularly those from backgrounds underrepresented in health professions, often apply to health professional programs ill-prepared and not as competitive as they can be. This book offers new pre-health professional advisors, as well as more seasoned advisors and other administrators, a resource to assist them in their professional journey (regardless of their prior training or lack of available mentorship) and to ensure that all students who wish to pursue health careers are well-prepared to do so."

– Profs. Lisa S. Schwartz (The George Washington University, USA) and Rohini Ganjoo (The George Washington University, USA)
