Health Professions Advising: Bev Sher's Homepage

I am William & Mary's Chief Health Professions Advisor. I am also a Senior Lecturer, formerly in the Biology Department and now in the Chemistry Department. In addition to my advising responsibilities, I also teach a number of courses, including my COLL 150, Emerging Diseases, and my COLL 100, Atoms to Cells.

If you are a William & Mary pre-med student, pre-dental student, pre-pharmacy student, or pre-veterinary student, and you would like some guidance, email me to set up an appointment to talk about your plans. My email address is, and my office is in ISC-3, room 2283. I would be happy to talk with you.

My advising handouts for William & Mary premedical, pre-dental, pre-pharmacy and pre-veterinary students are available through the "Handouts" link on the left side of this page, and include guidance on course selection, a recommended reading list, and some general advice on what premedical students need to do and when they need to do it.
