Health Professions Advising Office

Welcome to the Health Professions Advising Office! Our MISSION is to assist students and alumni in planning for, applying to, and gaining acceptance into graduate health professions programs. 

Created in 2007, we support Appalachian students and alumni interested in graduate health professions programs.  Connecting with students at Orientation, we work with students throughout their time at Appalachian, and beyond graduation when necessary.  We routinely see around 1000 students a year through individual advising, workshops, class visits, and other programming.  

Our alumni, who regularly used the HPA office in their journeys, are often very successful in gaining admission to their chosen health professions programs.
