LGBTQ + Pre-Med


Welcome to Northwestern Health Professions Advising’s LGBTQ + Pre-Med, a centralized resource for LGBTQ students preparing to apply to medical school. This resource aims to support LGBTQ premedical students pursuing careers in medicine by discussing common questions, considering how to find the right fit in a medical school, and connecting them to additional resources.

Our Commitment

We are committed to supporting students of all backgrounds in their pursuit of careers in medicine and in all other health professions. Our ultimate goal is to contribute to the development of a health workforce that truly reflects the rich diversity of our society. The medical school application process is difficult and stressful on its own, and navigating the process with non-dominant identities can create additional challenges. In developing this resource, Health Professions Advising hopes to help LGBTQ applicants meet those challenges confidently.
