The mission of the Health Professions Advising program is to support and to encourage both current and alumni students who aspire to health-related careers.   The office promotes a student-centered approach by providing a variety of advising services and resources geared to meet the individual needs, interests, and goals of pre-health students.  In alignment with the University’s Jesuit mission, the program also encourages a lifelong commitment to learning, personal growth and development through self-reflection, and engagement in the health care community.
