Welcome to the Health Professions Advisory Program

Sonoma State University (SSU) has an excellent advisory program for students who wish to have careers in various health professions. Students prepare at SSU to enter programs that lead to admission into medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine, optometry, pharmacy, podiatry and chiropractic medicine. In addition, students can prepare for graduate study in other health professions careers to become a physician assistant, physical therapist, clinical laboratory science, or in fields of public health. The Health Professions Advisory Committee (HPAC) provides advising for most of the above health professions.
