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).

As students are in different phases of their pre-health journey, we have different services and recommendations available. Please click on the text below for more information:
