Meet with an Advisor

Please review the following information prior to submitting the appointment request form below.

All freshman pre-med students are required to complete the HPA Webinar prior to being assigned an advisor. Instructions will be emailed directly to students in mid-October who attended an HPA Wildcat Welcome session or signed up for the listserv. After completing the webinar, you'll be assigned a Health Professions Advisor and can schedule with them through Inspire. 

Have you met with a pre-med/pre-health advisor before? If so, please schedule using Inspire. Inspire allows you to view your advisor's upcoming availability so you can choose the appointment time that works best for you. Please review our Inspire instructions and information prior to logging in and scheduling your appointment. If you have any trouble scheduling through Inspire, you may use the form below.

Looking to schedule a mock interview? Mock interviews are only available to students who have applied to medical school and have received one or more interview invitations. We are only able to provide one mock interview per student. To schedule your mock interview, please email our Program Assistant at with your interview information (school/program and date), as well as your availability for scheduling the mock interview. Mock interview requests will not be accepted via Inspire.

Please note: If you have brief questions (5-10 minutes) that do not require a full appointment, please consider attending one of our Drop-In Q&A sessions. These sessions are held throughout the academic year on Mondays from 3:00-4:30 and Thursdays from 1:30-3:00, on a first-come, first-served basis.

If you have any optional documents you would like the advisor to review before your meeting, like your resume or personal statement, please email them to: It is not necessary to send a copy of your transcripts.

Please note: This is a service for Northwestern undergraduates and alumni only. Students and alumni of the Northwestern School of Professional Studies (SPS) are not advised by HPA. Please visit the SPS student advising site for more information.
