Helping you get on track with the right major.
At Lipscomb, premedical studies encompasses much more than just medicine. Whether you are interested in pursuing a career in medicine, pharmacy, dentistry, veterinary medicine, physician assistant, physical therapy, optometry or some other health care field, Lipscomb's Health Professions Advisory Office is the perfect place to begin. Located in Ward Hall, the office is "home base" for all students interested in pursuing a premedical or pre-health care college track.
We understand, too, you have a lot of questions. That's why our Health Professions Advisory Committee (HPAC) members, comprised of knowledgeable and well-respected professionals and educators in their fields, are on-hand to assist you with every step of planning. Even if you're not sure at first of your plans, the committee is available to discuss ideas and goals, and help you select a major that best reflects who you are and who you want to be.
During the year of your application to professional school, members of this committee will interview you in order to prepare a letter of recommendation. So, it is helpful for us to begin getting acquainted with you as soon as possible. Please register with our office (HPAO) early in your first semester.
