The TCU Health Professions Advisory Committee (HPAC) is the heart and soul of the Pre-Health Institute. HPAC consists of faculty members who teach Pre-Health courses and advise Pre-Health students – thus the committee gets to know our students very well.

Our advisors have an open-door policy and care deeply about their students. Committee members help students select courses and assess each student’s academic progress at least once a semester. In addition, faculty members provide career counseling regarding the health professions and evaluate – both for the student and for the professional schools – the student’s suitability for entering the profession.

HPAC also offers “mock” or practice professional school interviews that afford all applicants the opportunity to hone their skills in traditional one-on-one and multi-mini interview formats before they experience the real thing at health professions schools.

Finally, our students take an Introduction to Pre-Health course as first-year students and Pre-Health Professional Development course as juniors or seniors.  These two “bookend” courses serve to orient students to all the resources offered by our committee and provide them with all they need to know to develop a successful application to professional school, respectively.
