Online Registration Open for Candidacy Reviews

If you are a current student or alum applying to medical or dental school in the summer of 2023, registration is now open for a Candidacy Review meeting. This is a 45-minute meeting with a pre-health advisor to discuss your preparation and candidacy for medical or dental school, and answer questions you may have. To sign up for a Candidacy Review, you must: 

Attend or view both the 'Preparing to Apply to Medical and Dental School' and the 'Evaluating  Your Candidacy' presentations AND complete the Portfolio of Experiences, Self-Assessment, Registration, and Education sections of the HPRC application

To learn more about the HPRC process, please visit the HPA Canvas course. Alumni can request access to Canvas by emailing prehealth@tufts.edu if you do not have access.
