CPHP students come from a variety of academic disciplines, programs of study and majors. If you are pursuing a degree outside of the sciences, CPHP advisors work alongside you to select appropriate electives to prepare you with professional school prerequisites.
Health Humanities Minor
You may select a minor to supplement your career path. ACU offers a health humanities minor specifically designed to broaden students’ worldview and develop professional characteristics required for success in a healthcare field. This minor can be added to any major.
CPHP offers several seminar classes that enhance pre-health professional development.
Introduction to Health Professions Seminar
- Introduction to Health Professions Seminar is designed for second-year pre-health students to explore different healthcare career paths, understanding how healthcare professionals work as a team, create portfolios and start developing pre-professional skills to support their applications to health professional programs.
Health Professions Application Seminar
- Health Professions Application Seminar supports pre-health students applying to health professional programs during their third and fourth year at ACU. This intentional seminar covers the application process and includes interview preparation and personal statement development.
Medical Missions Seminar
- Faculty mentors lead a medical missions seminar about ethical travel and best practices in international service and relief for pre-health students participating in CPHP’s medical mission trips.
