Applying to health professions schools is a lengthy, detail-oriented process: the HPA preapplication process is introduced through a fall semester information session two years before you hope to start professional school.
One of HPA's main goals is to guide students and alumni through the processes of deciding when to apply, completing the application in a timely and comprehensive manner, and navigating the admissions cycle. This includes writing a committee letter of recommendation on behalf of eligible applicants. Applicants to other health professions are supported through advising appointments and access to resources but are not expected to receive a committee letter of recommendation. HPA is happy to work with applicants to all health professional schools.
