Health Professions Advising Community

The Health Professions Advising Community is for advisors who work with students preparing for careers in the health professions, ranging from medicine, dentistry, and optometry to nursing, pharmacy, and other areas of health care. The focus of this community is to provide a means for sharing best practices, exchanging ideas, discussing current trends and creating resources that can help advisors better help their students.
