About the Program

Health Profession Pathways is a new program from the Pre-Health Student Resource Center supporting historically underrepresented undergraduate students to achieve their dreams of becoming a health professional.

Pathways will guide pre-health students in navigating the University of Minnesota and the road to application for health degree programs, and support them as they develop into competitive applicants. Pathways students will build community together and expand their networks through meaningful connections with health professional students and faculty mentors.

The Pre-Health Student Resource Center is partnering with President's Emerging Scholars (PES) for this program. Invitations to apply for the Pathways program for the 2021-2022 academic year will be sent to incoming PES students on April 20. This program is currently available for students on the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities campus. More details on Pathways eligibility can be found here

Health Profession Pathways students will:

  • Receive support with regular coaching from PHSRC counselors, PES staff, and broader campus support teams
  • Develop knowledge, skills, and qualities that health professional schools are looking for
  • Meet key milestones for a competitive application portfolio
  • Participate in hands-on experiences in the U of M health science schools and colleges, and meet with a team of health professional student coaches (students from the U of M Medical School, College of Pharmacy, etc.)
