Health Professions Scholars Program

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, Athletic Training, 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 five 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.

We are currently reviewing our admission requirements for the HPS Program and hope to have updates soon.  Please check back in the future for new information. 


The HPS Program is not accepting applications for the 2021 - 2022 cycle.
