Applying to Health Professional Programs

Health professional programs (and even different schools within the same profession) all do applications a little differently. Most use a centralized application service that is similar to the Common Application that you may have used to apply to college. The pages under the Apply tab in our Main Menu (above) provide general information about components of applications to most (if not all) health professional programs. We also have profession-specific information about applying to programs. Please follow the links below to find more information about applying to the health professional program you are interested in!

And please know that we are here for support throughout your application. Come in and talk with us about your plans to apply! We also have detailed Canvas courses on applying to MD/DO, PT, PA, and Dental programs. If you are interested in one of these fields and have completed the Orientation course, please ask us about these resources. We will be happy to add you to the appropriate Canvas course.

We look forward to working with you on your way to your future career!
