Continuity of Services during COVID-19

Given Loyola University Chicago's recently announced policy in response to COVID-19, all in-person programming will be indefinitely suspended and replaced by online appointments. This includes in-person appointments, drop-in advising, and workshops. To help ensure the continuity of services during this time, the Pre-Health Professions Program has curated a series of resources and responses to frequently asked questions here.

Appointments (Virtual appointments via Handshake through end of Spring Semester)


Students/Alumni can also schedule an advising appointment through Handshake or by calling our office at 773.508.3636.

Drop-in advising is offered during the academic year from Monday through Friday from 2 PM - 4 PM, unless noted otherwise.
