Pre-Health Advising

Office of Academic Advising

The Office of Academic Advising (OAA) provides specialized advising and resources for pre-med and other pre-health professions students. OAA helps you prepare for postgraduate programs and offers guidance during the application process. First-year students should attend the Health Professions Advising Orientation, held early in the fall semester, to begin preparing for potential health profession tracks.


Rice Pre-Medical Society

The Rice Pre-Medical Society (RPMS) is an undergraduate student-based organization that aims to provide resources, advice and opportunities to all Rice students interested in the health professions.

Their programs include the Big Owl/Little Owl Program (BOP) that connects a small group of Rice undergraduates with current medical students and physician mentors to promote discussion of medical issues and lifestyle topics in a causal setting and an annual Medical Speaker Conference that brings together physicians, researchers and professors from Rice and the Texas Medical Center to explore a health-related theme.
