Health Professions Program

Student Support Services

Indiana University undergraduate students enrolled in the IU School of Medicine Health Professions Program can access a wide range of support services from IU School of Medicine as well as those available through Indiana University, including academic advising, financial aid, and other important services.

Academic Advising

A professional advisor is available to assist Health Professions Program students who are working on the prerequisites for a professional program. Once admitted to a professional program, students are advised by faculty within the program. It is the student’s responsibility to seek counseling and guidance. The student is responsible for planning a program to meet degree requirements and for filing a completed application by the specific program’s application deadline. Find a complete list of resources related to program admission requirements, cost sheets and equivalency grids on MedNet’s HPP Student Advising page.
