Enroll in the Health Professions Program

The Health Professions Program (HPP) is an advising resource for students interested in pursuing a career in a health profession. Such careers include medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine, pharmacy, optometry, physician assistant, biomedical research, genetic counseling, and medical informatics, just to name a few.

The program is divided into three phases to help answer your questions at every stage of your undergraduate career:

  1. Exploration   What are some possible health careers? Which are right for me?
  2. Preparation   What are the requirements for applying to a health professions school?
  3. Application   What does the application process entail?

If you're interested in exploring and preparing for a health profession, you should register with the HPP office by subscribing to the HPP Mailman email information list.
