HPAC Ambassadors:

Successful 3rd and 4th-year pre-health students who are enthusiastic about sharing their experiences with you! The HPAC ambassador cohort represents a wide range of health professions and is highly involved in campus organizations, community programs, and research.  They provide guidance, support, and encouragement to help others become well-rounded students and competitive applicants. Ambassadors are available on a 'drop-in' basis throughout the week.  If you have questions about health profession requirements, selecting major, on-campus organizations, clinical experiences, research, etc. "drop-in" to speak with an HPAC Ambassador (schedule below).
