Meet Our Team

HPAC Advisors

Pre-Health advisors assist UCR students and alumni with health professions career exploration, pre-requisite course selection, how to prepare for professional entrance exams (i.e., MCAT, DAT) assistance with primary and secondary application writing as well other areas surrounding preparing for a career in the health professions.

To meet with a pre-health advisor, please attend the Introduction to Health Professions Workshop (in-person, Zoom or watch via our YouTube channel) and then call or email the Center to schedule a 30-minute appointment.

HPAC Ambassadors

Ambassadors also considered peers and mentors are academically high-achieving third and fourth year students who also have a strong resume of involvement in academic coursework, clubs/orgs., clinical experiences (shadowing, volunteering, working) research and service opportunities. Ambassadors support first year students (and beyond) to explore and discover engagement opportunities.  First year students are encouraged to meet with any ambassador at least once per quarter.

Additionally, ambassadors represent HPAC at admissions and student engagement events such as Discover Day, Highlander Day, Wednesday Nooners, events held by the Division of Undergraduate Education as well as other events that foster student exploration, involvement and learning.  

No appointment is needed to meet with an ambassador.
