Title: Promoting Possibilities: Competency-Based Approaches in Pre-Health Advising
Lead Presenter: Britt Frye
Date: October 07, 2021    Time: 2:15 pm - 3:15 pm
Room: Jr. Ballroom C, DECC
Abstract: Competency-based programs are expanding and advisors must be knowledgeable about effective advising models and strategies to help students succeed in achieving their goals. Effective competency-based advising is imperative in supporting pre-health professions students where professional competencies are increasingly used to evaluate applicants for admission to graduate and professional programs. Because competencies incorporate knowledge, skills, and abilities in areas beyond academic coursework, pre-health students may face difficulty in developing and illustrating proficiency.

This presentation will highlight our work advising pre-health professions students utilizing a pre-health competency model that integrates academic coursework and learning opportunities beyond the classroom. Best practices for implementing competency-based advising approaches as well as potential challenges will be explored.
