Are you considering a career in the Health Professions?  Come learn where you need to be in preparing your application to medical, podiatry, dental, veterinary or optometry school. We will cover updated required coursework information, application timeline and important resources. We will also offer advice on related activities that will enhance your application portfolio. And if you are still not quite certain what area of health professions interests you, we can direct you to guidance as you consider pathways and sort out allied health fields on the way to making sound decisions.

One more important point: We could use your help!  Let’s work together to make sure everyone who might have interest can attend this talk–we want to be sure no one misses the program! So share this information with classmates and invite your friends who are sophomores…and who might be considering health professions.  They may not yet be on our HP distribution list. Help us support them and you together.
