As a Pathways student, you will participate in exclusive activities throughout your undergraduate career, including hands-on experiences in simulation labs, coaching from health professional school students, visits to health care settings, and more.

These opportunities will help you build the knowledge, skills, and qualities (sometimes referred to as competencies) and meet the requirements necessary to be competitive for application to a health professional program.

Your experiences in the Pathways program will be personalized based on a number of considerations - your career goals, your strengths and motivations, and your support needs.
