Update to the Health Professions Recommendation Committee (HPRC) - Now the Professional Schools Application Program (PSAP)

Starting with the 23-24 academic year, the process that culminates with the HPA Office uploading a letter packet on your behalf to the appropriate application services has changed its name.  The process, formerly known as the Health Professions Recommendation Committee (HPRC) process, is now the Professional School Application Program (PSAP).  The change was made to more accurately reflect the support and services that our office provides to our students and alumni as they prepare for and navigate the medical and dental school application process.  If you're unfamiliar with PSAP (formerly HPRC), we encourage you to review Module 7 in the HPA Canvas Course or review the link below.  Additionally, be sure to read Health-E News and check Announcements in the HPA Canvas Course as we share information regarding the start of the PSAP process for the 2024-2025 application cycle!  Alumni who have lost access to Canvas can email prehealth@tufts.edu to gain access with a personal email.
