The CCSU Pre-health Advisory Committee
The Pre-health Professions Program at CCSU is an advising and support system for undergraduates and post-baccalaureate students preparing for careers in the health sciences. Students interested in health careers such as allopathic or osteopathic medicine, dentistry, podiatry, optometry, naturopathy or veterinary medicine, will benefit from reading the information at this site but should also identify themselves to the Program coordinator, Dr. Peter Osei. The Pre-health Professions Advisory Committee (Pre-PAC), chaired by Dr. Cheryl Watson, exists to advocate for students seeking entrance to professional schools.
The Program coordinator is a faculty member who serves as a secondary advisor concerning pre-professional school curriculum for both undergraduate and post-baccalaureate students. Currently, Dr. Peter Osei in the Department of Biology is the coordinator. You need to meet with Dr. Osei or another member of the Pre-health Committee at least once every semester beginning in your freshman year to discuss your professional goals, academic progress and suggested courses for the upcoming semester. Please see Dr. Osei or another member of the Pre-health Committee before you meet with your regular academic advisor. You can contact Dr. Osei by e-mail (email@example.com) or phone at (860) 832-2657; other Committee members can be contacted at the links below.
