Health Professions Week (HPW) is an exciting, free week-long event for high school and college students interested in learning more about careers in the health professions. HPW will include an online treasure hunt, campus outreach events and two virtual fairs. HPW is designed to provide prospective students from across the country with multiple opportunities to explore 19 different health professions, so they can identify the best career pathways for them. Students will learn about the roles and responsibilities of each profession, talk directly with current health care practitioners and access the educational requirements for each career.
As part of HPW, Pre-Professional Advising is partnering with the College of Health and Human Sciences and College of Science to present a panel and networking event.

New Resource Available for Pre-Medical Students
The Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) has created an online pre-medical guide that discusses issues such as where to find information on MD programs (the MSAR), the MCAT, the online application (AMCAS) and financial aid for medical school. This is a great starting place to learn more about the resources available to you. Check out the AAMC Resources for Pre-Med Students.
Consider Study Abroad as a Pre-Professional Student
It is possible to study abroad as a pre-professional student, but you need to plan ahead for the timing and for the costs.
