Pre-Health & HPAC
In keeping with the College's liberal arts mission, students planning careers in the health professions can study a pre-health curriculum while also working toward an academic major. Pre-health is not a major, but rather a program of study intended to prepare students for advanced study in health-related professions. Students interested in pre-health should inform their academic advisors and the pre-health advisor as soon as possible to coordinate the pre-health requirements and those of the student's chosen major.
A faculty committee, the Health Professions Advisory Committee (HPAC) coordinates this program and provides guidance and recommendation letters for students applying to professional school. The pre-health advisor serves as the chair of this committee.
Further information can be found at the Health Professions Advisory Committee (HPAC) home page.
Contact the pre-health advisor, Dr. Wayne Shew (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Students interested in a career in nursing should consider the pre-nursing dual degree program (link to advising web information page on pre-nursing). Information is available at the HPAC pre-nursing page and in the College Catalog, under Courses of Study, Cooperative Programs.
