Pre-Professional Health Advising (PPHA) is an undergraduate advising office for current Temple University students and alumni interested in pursuing a career in the health professions. The advising offered by our office supplements the academic advising provided by the advising center in the student's primary college. We support students interested in preparing to go to professional school in any of the following areas:

  • Medicine
  • Dentistry
  • Physical Therapy
  • Pharmacy
  • Occupational Therapy
  • Physician Assistant
  • Podiatry
  • Optometry
  • Veterinary Medicine

Our office works with students to build a strong profile for professional school. Our advising appointments, workshops, and ePortfolio system are utilized to better prepare students for their eventual applications. All current pre-professional students should register for Canvas and attend workshops offered by PPHA. Signing up grants you access to all Canvas services including ePortfolio and appointment scheduling.
