Center for Career Exploration

Pre-Law and Pre-Med Advising

In any given year, 1 in 4 Brown graduates attend graduate or professional school, or secure prestigious fellowships immediately after Brown or within a few years after graduation, including many in the fields of health and medicine and law and legal services.

Career pathways in these fields require students to pursue additional education in medical schools, other health professions schools (osteopathic, veterinary, allopathic, dental, etc.) or law school. It is not uncommon for students to take a gap year (or two or more) between graduation from Brown and applying/matriculating to medical school or to work for two or more years before they apply to law school, though a small number of graduates matriculate directly.

You can engage with the Career Counseling team at the Brown Center for Career Exploration to discuss your interest in these career pathways. You can also develop your professional network and discover opportunities to gain internship and research experiences in health and law through programs at the center.

Health Careers and Pre-Law Advising

In addition to resources at the center, the College provides comprehensive, structured advising and preparation programs for students interested in health and law careers. Both Health Careers Advising and Pre-Law Advising have programs and resources that are available to all students at Brown regardless of class year, so we encourage you to engage early if you might be interested in pursuing these career pathways.
