Although there are many different kinds of health professionals, they all share two important things:
- a desire to help people
- a willingness to continue education every day of their life!
The Health Professions Advising Office (HPAO) at the University of Mississippi embodies the spirit of those driving passions for health professionals. As the only full-service office of its kind in the state of Mississippi, our mission is to counsel all UM health professions students on available opportunities for a health care career, and advise students toward a competitive application. We take your aspirations and help you to become the best!
Our four advisors specialize in tailoring advising to each individual student. We create a customized path designed for you to highlight your strengths and equip you to become the most competitive applicant you can be.
We provide opportunities for students to get involved. Each year, we select approximately 30 students to serve as HPAO Ambassadors, giving our students an opportunity to help fellow students. Ambassadors are selected through an application process and are uniquely suited to give you an inside perspective into the life of a health professions student.
We invite you to learn more about HPAO services and connect with us. It’s never too early to start your journey towards a health profession. Please contact us at: (662) 915-1674. firstname.lastname@example.org
