Health Professions

Are you interested in a career in the health professions?  You already know that you have to take certain classes and earn good grades.  However, did you also know that there are additional activities that you need to pursue to put together a successful application?  Did you know that you apply to most health care programs in your junior year, so it's important to start planning as a freshman?  Careers in healthcare are highly desired and getting accepted to professional schools is very competitive. 

You aren't in this alone; we, the Roanoke College's Health Professions Advisory Group (HealthPAG), are here to help!  We have faculty experts to assist you in your quest for a career in the health professions.   Please contact the Deborah Duncan and she will help you get connected to a HealthPAG advisor.
