Pre-Professional Association


About PPA

The goal of our organization is to provide information regarding professional schools to students interested in any area of healthcare. This includes, but is not limited to, information about post-graduate schools, alternative career choices, and possible scholarships and internships available. The group also serves as a way to network students to post-graduate schools, as well as other students with the same goals. Meetings are informational in nature, with field trips scheduled throughout the semester. Questions? Please contact one of the officers.
