This workbook will be your guide to preparing for and applying to the PHPAC.
The Pre-Health Professions Advisory Committee, or PHPAC, was established to write letters of evaluation for UNE students applying to graduate health professions programs. The PHPAC crafts letters for students applying to allopathic and osteopathic medical schools, veterinary and dental programs, as well as other medical fields such as optometry and podiatry. The PHPAC will review requests for other letters, such as post baccalaureate programs, as well.
Most professional schools highly value letters of recommendation from this type of committee. Providing a PHPAC-reviewed letter allows admissions committees to more effectively evaluate the suitability of applicants. By providing the PHPAC with a comprehensive portfolio, we are able to provide a well-rounded view of the applicant as a student and citizen.
