The Health Professions Advising Office (HPAO) provides a wide range of advising and support services designed to meet the needs of CSULB students as they navigate through the often-complex process of preparation and application to professional school. HPAO serves students interested in pursuing graduate level health professions including medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, optometry, veterinary, and physician assistant. Our office is located in the Jensen Student Access to Science (SAS) and Mathematics Center.

Students We Work With: The HPAO works with CSULB students (both undergrad and grad), as well as students that are taking courses through Open University. We also serve our CSULB recent alumni (if you have graduated over 5-years ago, please contact our office to see what kind of advising options would be available).


Please note that during the period of October 2015-February 2016, HPAO services will be limited. During this interim, the resources below will address many of your questions.

Health Profession Applicants

If you are applying this cycle and need help with your application, personal statement, or even a mock interview, you can set up an appointment with Lyndsey in the spring semester March - May. For any fall semester preparation, we recommend that you work with the Career Development Center specifically with any interview preparation, as well as personal statement reviews and/or secondary application support (please see additional applicant information).
