Health Professions Education and Career Resources

UA Little Rock helps to prepare students who want to apply to graduate programs in the health professions. We have provided some preliminary information below but students should contact programs and schools directly to learn more about prerequisites, admissions requirements, admissions deadlines, etc.

What are the Health Professions?

Many students believe they must earn a specific undergraduate degree to pursue these careers, but that is not necessarily true. To apply to most graduate medical programs, you need to:

  • Earn high grades (cumulative GPA of 3.5+) and make connections with faculty
  • Take the necessary prerequisite courses for the program in which you’re interested
  • Do well on the standardized admissions test
  • Volunteer with underserved populations
  • Obtain some clinical experience

You can find some more information, job sites, and general links at the bottom of this page.
