Health Professions Academy

Professional Development Workshops

Throughout the year, the HPA conducts workshops in partnership with the Office of Minority Affairs and Diversity and Undergraduate Academic Affairs that are aimed at helping students pursuing careers in medicine and dentistry develop a variety of skills that are important while preparing for and applying to professional school, including:

  • Time management
  • Learning styles
  • Study skills
  • Personal statement writing workshops
  • Interviewing skills
  • Professional Development Year (Gap Year) Discussions
  • Post-bacc programs
  • Medical school & dental school admissions workshops

are among the small- and large-group workshops the HPA conducts.  Many of the workshops are offered multiple times during the year, and scholars are advised to participate in some of the workshops at very specific times related to their stage of preparation for applying to medical or dental school.
