PreMedicine Advisory Committee

The PreMedical Advisory Committee–comprised of a chair, program coordinator and faculty advisors–provides overall direction for the PreMedical programs at IIT and serves as a body of student advisors.

Once students choose a major, they are assigned a PreMedical advisor from their department. Advisors help with course scheduling, monitor academic progress, and identify volunteer and research opportunities. Advisors also help with the medical school admission process, including:

  • Preparing students for the Medical College Admission Test, or MCAT, in the third year of undergraduate study.
  • Collecting letters of recommendation.
  • Forwarding applications to medical schools designated by students.

*These committee members are also student advisors.
