Health Professions

The Health Professions Advising Program (HPAP) serves undergraduates and alumni of Yale College, students in the Graduate School of Arts & Sciences, and Postdoctoral Associates who are interested in pursuing advanced study in the health professions. We encourage you to meet with an advisor to guide you in making conscious and thoughtful decisions about your goals.

PreHealth Studies Overview

The majority of health professions programs practice holistic review of applications. Several factors contribute to success in their program. The Association of American Medical Colleges outlines the Anatomy of an Applicant and Core Competencies relevant to healthcare professions. Pre-health students major in any discipline without adversely affecting their admission into a health professions school. Completion of prerequisite courses are required prior to matriculation and for admissions exams. Each program has its own set of pre-requisite requirements, and school websites have the most current information.

🔔 Advanced Placement courses and/or Acceleration Credits often do not satisfy premedical requirements for admission to medical or other health professions schools. In some cases they may be used to elect advanced courses in those disciplines. Speak with a health professions advisor about how these credits pertain to your own individual plan.

To complement challenging coursework, look for opportunities to develop a range of competencies. Consider volunteering in a direct patient contact setting, possibly shadowing practitioners in their chosen profession, viewing webinars about health professions, and research. Involvement in community service, extracurricular activities or work experiences, both related and unrelated to medicine, will help broaden an applicant’s knowledge and development. 👉Check out some healthcare & community related experiences.

Post-Baccalaureate Programs

Students who choose not to complete their science pre-requisite courses during their undergraduate years can complete the requirements in a Post-Baccalaureate Pre-Medical Program before applying to a health professions school. Learn more about Post-Baccalaureate options and how to find a post-bacc program.
