Your path to a career in a human or animal health profession can be complex.

A Health Professions Advisor can help you prepare for a professional program and set you in the right direction.

Health professions students have two academic advisors available to assist them:
  1. CSU Major Advisor (Primary Advisor): Guides the student toward successful completion of her/his Bachelor’s Degree at CSU. Prior to declaring a major, students should meet with an Undeclared Advisor.  To find out who your CSU Advisor is, log into RamWeb.
  2. Health Professions Advisor (Secondary Advisor): Assists the student in preparation for a health professional program.
