The Council for Health Professions Preparation (CHPP) consists of:

  • director of pre-health programs (DPP)
  • faculty members from varied disciplines

  • and practicing medical and health professionals

The council acts as liaisons between pre-health students and the director, provides advice and guidance to the DPP with respect to the pre-med/pre-health program, and participates in the evaluation of all pre-med/pre-health students who request a "Committee Letter" for their application to professional schools or programs.
