Internet Resources:

UC Davis' Health Science Advising maintains a superb web site with extensive information on many health professions. Click Here to access that site.

 

Studentdoctor.net is among the most popular web sites for pre-health students, and offers much good advice. However, be cautious as the forums can at times be rather skewed and competitive in nature.
