Health Professions will host Drop-In Advising on the first day of every registration block (Monday 10/18, Monday 10/25, and Monday 11/1) from 8:30AM-4:30PM in Hickory Hall, Rm. 256. In the morning on those days we will place a sign-up sheet at our front desk, where you'll be able to sign up for any slot that is available that day. A few things to remember about HP Drop-In Advising:
- Each advising slot will be for 15 minutes
- We will not advise on your degree or graduation requirements
- We cannot remove advising holds
- You will not be able to request a particular Pre-Health Advisor
- Health Professions drop-in advising is open to all classifications (freshman, sophomores, juniors, seniors, etc.)
- If you would rather make a 30 minute advising appointment, please visit https://unt.navigate.eab.com/
The Office of Health Professions helps students who want to enter the health care industry. We provide pre-health advising in the following areas:
- Veterinary Medicine
- Physician Assistant
- Physical Therapy
- Occupational Therapy
UNT does not offer a formal program for each of the professions listed above. In other words, we do not offer pre-health programs for which students apply or qualify. Our advising office helps students navigate their path to such a professional program. Due to the intimidating nature of this journey, our mission is to provide students with a plan that is time-efficient, competitive, and aligns favorably with their passion.To explore other health-related programs on the UNT campus, please visit our Health Careers website!
Some of the services we provide are:
- Personalized advising
- Mentorship Program (Fall 2021)
- Career exploration/alternative plans
- Application guidance and planning (seminars, workshops, etc.)
- Review of entrance requirements
- Professional timeline
- Interview preparation
- HPAC (Health Professions Advisory Committee)
What is JAMP?
JAMP, the Joint Admission Medical Program, is a Texas state-wide program that helps students coming from an underserved or low socio-economic background become physicians. If a student is selected to be a JAMPer and maintains all eligibility requirements, an interview will be extended to the student by each Texas medical school, with a direct entry into one of the medical schools. For more information about JAMP, please visit their website. For current students who would like to learn more about the process of applying to JAMP, please send an email to our JAMP Faculty Director, Todd Lang (email@example.com).
We have created several resource guides to help you connect to important opportunites within the community that can aid in creating a strong application to health professional school. Resource guides will be updated regularly, check them out!
