Health Professions Office

The Health Professions Office (HPO), located on the Busch campus, offers a wide range of services to all Rutgers-New Brunswick/Piscataway students planning to enter one of the health care fields. This office offers counseling and advisory services, maintains student files, and supplies application materials. It publishes a monthly newsletter and has produced a handbook and several other publications for students. The HPO also maintains a library that includes reference materials, professional school catalogs, admissions statistics, and videos.

Students interested in postgraduate study in health care are urged to visit the HPO to open a file. Students then may begin asking their instructors and others for letters of recommendation, which are to be submitted on a standard form available in the HPO. After a student has completed requirements for admission to a professional school, the HPO will schedule an interview between the student and a member of the Health Professions Advisory Committee. This interview culminates in a composite letter of evaluation that, at the student`s direction, is forwarded to each school to which the student applies.

The HPO is located in Nelson Biology Laboratories, Room A-207, on the Busch campus. For further information about the HPO on the Busch campus, call 732/445-5667.

There is a second office available to Douglass College students. For more information about the Douglass College office, call 732/932-9197, ext. 19. Douglass students also may use the Busch campus office. THIS OFFICE CLOSED IN 2007.

Students interested in the study of pharmacy are encouraged to contact the Ernest Mario School of Pharmacy at 732/445-2675, ext. 605.
