Health Sciences Pre-Professional Evaluation Committee Interview

Main Content

The Health Sciences Pre-Professional Evaluation Committee is designed for undergraduate students at Penn State preparing for application to medical, dental, podiatry, and optometry schools.

Health Sciences Pre-Professional Committee

The committee, composed of numerous faculty and advisors from various colleges within the University, assist in preparing a committee letter of evaluation in support of students applying to health profession schools. It is not required by Penn State that students use this committee, but many health professional schools require such a committee letter, and most students find the process helpful. 

Dr. Ronald A. Markle is the chair of the Health Sciences Pre-Professional Committee.  For additional information on the operation of this committee, download the packet with instructions and forms.
