HPAC Orientation Sessions

The Pre-Health Advising Center is holding HPAC Orientations (group orientation sessions) to prepare students for the 2023 Health Professions Advisory Committee (HPAC) application and evaluation process. We are also excited to partner with the Writing Center to hold Personal Statement Orientations and Workshops for applicants. 

If you are a pre-Medical or pre-Dental student that plans to apply in the upcoming application cycle (with the goal of starting a medical or dental program in Fall 2024), you must attend an HPAC Orientation as well as a Personal Statement Orientation and Personal Statement Workshop to be eligible to participate in HPAC's 2023 evaluation. Students who do not attend all 3 sessions will not be eligible for evaluation.

HPAC Application Materials will be available to students on October 14, 2022. We will accept completed documents beginning January 17, and all documents must be submitted by 11:59 pm on February 24, 2023. HPAC will only accept 150 applicants for this cycle, and will stop accepting documents once we reach 150 applicants regardless of date. All completed documents should be submitted to prehealth@uh.edu.

The required orientations and workshop sessions will be held on the following dates and times. Sign ups are required for all events. As HPAC can only accept 150 applicants for evaluation, we recommend you sign up for the earlier sessions to have all the information you need to prepare your application and be ready to submit in January. Please note that you should give yourself an appropriate amount of time (3-4 weeks) between Personal Statement Orientations and Personal Statement Workshop so you can bring in your required draft for review.
