Welcome to HPAC!

The Health Professions Advising Center provides information, advising, and support for students who aspire to graduate/professional programs in the health professions and wish to enhance their academic and extracurricular preparation. Professional staff and peer mentors are available to guide students as they plan their pre-health professions course work, health related experiences, service work, and research in preparation for applying to programs. We invite you to join this community of pre-health professions students.

HPAC offers:

  • Information about health professions
  • Individual and small group health professions advising
  • Peer mentors
  • Speakers, workshops, conferences and events
  • Graduate/professional school application assistance
  • Email updates
  • Student Resource Room

Have Questions?

The path to a health career can be confusing, but we are here to help! If you ever have any questions concerning pre-health requirements, becoming involved in co-curricular activities, making sure you are prepared for professional school admissions tests, or what your next step should be, come by our main office to talk to an intern, peer mentor, or professional advisor.

Our HPAC peer mentors are also available throughout the week during their Ask a Peer Mentor Hours. Click on the link or visit the "Peer Mentor" tab under "Who We Are" in the menu to find the full peer mentor schedule. Our peer mentors are highly involved student organizations on campus as well as health-related programs in the community. They can help you find co-curricular activities that fit your interests as well as clarify any questions you might have about basic health school requirements or what it is like to be a pre-health student and what you can do to manage your time efficiently.

Schedule an Advising Appointment

Before scheduling an appointment for advising, you must attend a one-time, one-hour HPAC Introduction to Health Professions Workshop.

Still have questions after our many comprehensive workshops? Are you ready to come up with a long term plan? Our professional advisors are available for scheduled appointments for students who have more complex questions or would like to discuss their personalized path to a health profession.

To schedule an appointment:

  • Call 951.827.6233 OR
  • Stop by the HPAC office in Pierce Hall 1114 (just around the corner from CNAS Advising)

 

HPAC Advising Appointments: Monday-Friday 9am-12noon and 1-4pm
