How to Meet with Us

IMPORTANT: Beginning in 2017-2018, CPHA can no longer schedule appointments with first year students.


During your first year at UW-Madison, all freshmen should complete the free, non-credit online orientation course, “Preparing for Professional Programs in Healthcare,” and volunteer for at least a semester at a hospital or other facility. Sign up for the orientation course here. The course will be available on September 7, 2017.


We look forward to seeing you in your sophomore year after you have completed the orientation and begun volunteering!


In the meantime, first year students are welcome to stop by for a brief meeting (10 minutes or so) at our First Year Friday drop-in hours, chat with an advisor online via the orientation course, or send an email to our questions box at
