There are a variety of health-related programming on campus, including panel presentations and discussions with health care providers, medical students, and professional school admissions representatives. The College also has volunteer programs with two hospitals in Brunswick, and a network of local health professionals makes it possible for undergraduates to participate in "informational interviewing" and "job shadowing."
Application and Admission to Health Professions Programs
The Office of Health Professions Advising will assist any student or graduate of the College seeking admission to a health professions program. In keeping with the national trend, in recent years many Bowdoin pre-meds have elected to gain additional experience between college and medical school.
Students may seek advice at any time regarding the preparation and academic planning for the health sciences from the director or faculty members in the sciences.
Bowdoin is an active member of the Northeast Consortium on Medical Education (NECOME), a group that includes nine medical schools and nine undergraduate institutions. The College is also affiliated with professional organizations such as the National and Northeast Associations of Advisors in the Health Professions (NAAHP and NEAAPH).
