Upon matriculating into the M.B.S. program, you will be matched with an advisor. Our advisors have years of experience advising and mentoring pre-health professions students, like you. Your advisor will work with you on time management, academic success, study skills, professional advancement, and health professions preparation. While you are assigned an advisor, you also have access to mentoring and advising from any member of the M.B.S. program office or NSU faculty member.
