How to Make the Most of Your Time During COVID-19

We have create a guide on how to access CSULB HPAO resources as well as a list of resources and ideas to help you make the most of your time whether it's through giving back to your community, planning and working on your applications, learning more about your desired health professions field, or engaging in self-care.

Health Professions Associations COVID-19 Websites

Many of the health professions associations are aware of the changes and challenges you are facing at this time due to COVID-19. You may have questions around the overall impact on their application and the application process, such as, policies on pass/fail courses, delay in the opening of an application cycle, response around shadowing experiences, etc.

In an effort to help address your questions, many of the health professions associations and centralized application services (CAS) have developed a specific COVID-19 website or page where you can find updated information. Below is a chart of some of the health professions and their related websites to make it easier for you to know where to go to find this information. I hope you find this helpful and it will be updated with additional health professions as needed.
