HPS Program Application Instructions

The application to the HPS Program is only available online. As part of the online application, students must upload the following documents (only Word or PDF files are acceptable):

  • An essay, consisting of no more than 500 words, reflecting the student's motivation for choosing a career in health care
  • A resume, no longer than two pages, that details extracurricular involvement, healthcare experience, volunteer/community service, leadership experience, honors/awards, or additional information a student deems pertinent

**If a student does not meet both of the academic criteria required for this program, s/he is also required to upload a supplemental 500 word essay to petition for admission into the program.

ALL documents (essays and resumes) must be uploaded as either Microsoft Word or Adobe PDF documents. Any applicant who submits documents in another format will be automatically disqualified.

The format of the content of the essay and resume are at the discretion of the student. No specific font, font size, margin size, style, or spacing is required or preferred, although resumes and/or essays that are difficult to read or that have distracting fonts will be subject to point deductions.

The application for the 2017 - 2018 academic year is now available! The password needed to access this document is HPS2017.
