Health Professions Advising offering “Careers in Medicine” course in Fall 2018

Many of you have asked about the “Careers in Medicine” course that Health Professions Advising traditionally offered in Fall semester but wasn’t in the course catalog this semester. We had some changes with the department that had offered this in the past, and now Careers in Medicine course is being offered out of the Department of Biological Sciences (and will still be taught by HPA). We are excited for this partnership and are working with them to obtain final course approval. In the meantime, we will be offering this course as a Special Study course in Fall 2018. The particulars are as follows:
