Health Professions Advising


Study Abroad

Studying abroad is a wonderful opportunity that we hope all students take advantage of. The key to pursuing an interest in the health professions and studying abroad is to familiarize yourself with the application process and deadlines before you go abroad. Planning in advance is key. Please be advised that you are expected to adhere to all listed deadlines. Most Rochester students who go abroad do so during the junior or senior year.

Important considerations to address when considering studying abroad with an interest in the health professions:

There are alternatives. Summer study abroad programs are one option, and study abroad for just the fall semester of your junior year is another. You might also consider delaying your application to professional school by one year, particularly if you hope to spend a full academic year abroad. Once again, the choice is yours. Many students have been able to balance study abroad with a successful application to a health professions graduate school.
