The Health Professions Office, located in the Allegheny Gateway, is dedicated to helping students interested in careers in human medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine, podiatry, optometry, physical therapy, occupational therapy, chiropractic, physician assistant, nursing, medical technology, public health, and pharmacy. The Health Professions Advisor is guided by a Committee comprised of four faculty and four students.
Services include individual advising, workshops, panel discussions, lectures, and internship development. Assistance with the application process includes a formal interview, critique of written materials, a Committee Letter of Recommendation, and advice about specific programs. An extensive library includes medical literature (fiction and non-fiction), catalogues, career option books, and test prep materials.
Our policy is to assist any student who is interested in any type of medicine. We will write a supportive letter of recommendation for any student (barring Honor Code and/or judicial violations). We do not screen anyone out at any point in the process.
