Welcome to the Middlebury College Office of Health Professions & STEM Advising.

Our office offers a number of opportunities for you to prepare for a career in health professions or one of the STEM fields. Our advisors are here to guide you and provide you with info sessions, opportunities, internships, and workshops to help you explore your options. We hope this website, along with our BLOG will help support Middlebury students and alumni in their application to professional school.


All Middlebury students and alumni interested in Health Professions or STEM fields may schedule an appointment at any time regarding academic planning, internships and professional school applications with our Health Professions & STEM advisors or the science faculty or their academic advisors. During orientation, first-year students will have an opportunity to meet with our advisors at the Academic Forum. We advise students interested to join our mailing list for access to our newsletter, blog and coming events. The Office of Health Professions & STEM Advising highly recommends that students explore their interests in greater depth by finding opportunities for community service and engaging in internships.

In addition to advising, the Middlebury College Office of Health Professions & STEM Advising assists any student or alumni who is seeking admission to a program in the health professions (Pre-med, Pre-vet, Pre-dental, etc.). Each year 50-60 students go through our committee process and request committee letters as well as work closely with their advisor throughout the application process.

Welcome Class of 2018.5!

We look forward to meeting all new Febs at the Academic Forum on Friday, February 6th at 9:00 am in Atwater Dining Hall. Also, any new Febs interested in the Health Professions & STEM track, come meet us at the New Febs Information Meeting, Tuesday, February 10th at 6:15 pm in BiHall 104.
