The Health Professions Navigator Scholars Program (HPN Scholars)

The Health Professions Navigator Scholars Program (HPN Scholars) is a professional development program for undergraduate students enrolled at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC).

Through interactions with students, faculty, staff, and practitioners, program participants will be exposed to issues related to health disparities as well as learn about the various pathways into the health sciences and health professions. The HPN Scholars program will help participants successfully navigate their undergraduate degree program and the admissions process for professional or graduate schools.  The Program will meet twice a month on Wednesday evenings from 6:00pm-7:30pm.
