The Office of Health Professions Careers (OHPC) has spent several years developing a student support system that will guide students on their medical career pathway by providing academic support and promoting excellence in pre-health pathways, while identifying top candidates for our early admissions programs.


The student support mechanisms include student career counseling, mentoring, tutoring, enrichment activities, as well as academic advising for the Health Professions. We provide our students with academic enrichment to supplement and enhance their regular semester course work. Some of the enrichment opportunities include:

  • Fall and Spring Semester Saturday Workshops
  • Kaplan MCAT Course
  • MCAT Boot Camp
  • Two Week Summer Enrichment
    • High School Juniors and Seniors
  • Five Week Summer Enrichment
    • Undergraduate freshman and sophomores


Pre-health students are encouraged to achieve the highest academic standards. A great resource for achieving that standard is our lending library. The OHPC lending library maintains the latest books and materials for graduate test preparations such as, MCAT, DAT, PCAT, and GRE.

Our top students are eligible to apply for the Distinguished Scholars Program. The purpose of the Distinguished Scholars Program is to identify and foster high achievement in academics, community involvement, leadership and charity as it pertains to the health professions. To become a Distinguished Scholars student, students must achieve a minimum 3.5 GPA. Students invited to apply to Distinguished Scholars Program are selected based on a variety of factors including academic achievement, community service, leadership, research, and other service involvements.
