Apply to the Health Professions Program

Who should apply to HPP?

The Health Professions Program hopes to recruit and support a diverse and broad cohort of students interested in health professions. Our ideal student is not just the traditional pre-health student (interested in Medical School, Nursing, Pharmacy, Physical Therapy, Podiatry, and more), but also includes students outside of these tracks. You may be interested Health Care Administration, Public Health, Global Health, Data Analytics, Biostatistics, Epidemiology, Clinical Counseling, Clinical Nutrition, and more. The Health Professions Program really encourages you to think outside the traditional box and explore the future of where healthcare careers are headed.

Our “big tent” will admit all interested students into the Health Professions Program cohort, which we expect will grow to approximately 100 per entering class. Rosalind Franklin University believes strongly in the value of the College’s liberal arts education and our goal is to create an inclusive program that can draw students from any major. You can still pursue up to two majors and have a minor. This program has no additional cost.

To apply, students would submit a short essay describing their interests and motivations to study health-related professions. There would be an application window in the fall and in the spring.  There will be milestones for continued participation, including a minimum semester GPA and progression through the requirements.

Students could apply to join the Health Professions Program up through the fall of their junior year, to maximize flexibility for most of our current students and to create opportunities for incoming transfers to participate in the program.  

For further information, please contact Professor Shubhik DebBurman, Chair of the Health Professions Program.
