Advisement worksheets

Advisement Worksheets are available for many health professions. For example, if you are interested in medicine as a career, choose Medicine from the list below and you will see how to proceed with course selection and curriculum planning at UCO. Many students preparing for careers in health professions will go on to receive graduate degrees before they become licensed. Therefore, they should be satisfying requirements for a baccalaureate degree at UCO. Although a specific major is not required, students must demonstrate strengths in science, math, compassion for people, and knowledge of the health professions they choose to enter.
