HPA Hours & Appointments

Drop-In Hours are suspended for the summer.

Regular appointments available through May 26.

Drop-In Hours are for check ins and quick questions. Students sign up at HPA and are seen on a first come, first served basis. To receive a reminder about drop-ins, you can sign up in the HPA WASS Calendar appointment block for the Drop-In Hours time you plan to attend.

To schedule an individual appointment, use the HPA Appointment Calendar in WASS - appointments become available two weeks in advance.

Question of the Week: Journaling as a Pre-Health Student Question: Hi HPA – I’ve been told by a lot of people that reflecting on my premed activities and experiences as I have them may be helpful when I apply to medical school, but I’ve never really been good at writing in a journal or being reflective. Do you have any advice?
