Health Professions Advising


Health Professions Advising at Rhodes College serves as a clearinghouse for all things pre-health. We serve all pre-health students, beginning with admission to Rhodes and extending beyond graduation, by creating an environment of support and opportunity through advising, programming, and campus and community partnerships. HPA works diligently to achieve the following objectives:

  • Promote student exploration of healthcare careers and assist students in understanding how to achieve educational and career goals related to health professions.
  • Provide students with opportunities to engage in clinical work, service, and research.
  • Encourage self-reflection on academic and extracurricular experiences and assist students in identifying and discussing how those experiences have prepared them for a career of service in healthcare.

Our Pre-Health students benefit from studying closely with mentors and peers in small classes and through off-campus opportunities at world class institutions such as Baptist Memorial Health Care, Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, and many others.

Pre-health students may choose any major to complement prerequisite classes in the sciences. Our liberal arts program allows for the development of well-rounded students, which sets Rhodes graduates apart as professional school applicants and in their careers.
