Health Professions Scholars Program

Health Professions Scholars (HPS) Program

The College of Health and Human Services and Missouri State University are proud to announce the return of our Health Professions Scholars (HPS) Program for the 2015 - 2016 academic year!  The HPS Program is a selective-entry program designed for high-achieving incoming freshmen who are interested in pursuing a career in Audiology, Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, or as a Physician Assistant.   Participants in this program will complete a series of requirements in addition to those included in their undergraduate programs of study.  Students who successfully complete this program and apply to one of the three participating Missouri State University graduate programs are guaranteed an interview with that program.  Because these programs are highly competitive, the promise of a guaranteed interview gives students a significant edge in the application process. 

Please see the eligibility requirements section of this website to see if you qualify.
