The HPS Program provides participants with many unique and valuable experiences. The most notable benefit of participating in this program is the promise of a guaranteed interview with one of three competitive-entry graduate programs on the Missouri State University campus. Participating programs include Audiology, Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, and Physician Assistant Studies. Admission to each of these programs is a multi-step process. The admission interview marks the final step, carrying a significant amount of weight in the decision process. Those who can successfully navigate the interview have a considerable advantage in the application process.
Other benefits of the program include individualized advisement and mentorship from faculty representing the participating graduate programs, unique professional development opportunities, and events designed exclusively for HPS participants.
