Pre-Professional Health Careers

We are your healthcare career partner.

We provide you with the resources you need to explore, prepare for and enter a career in the health professions. From Red Raider Orientation and beyond, PPHC will help you every step of the way.


We'll be your academic advisors if you've chosen a pre-health area for dentistry, medicine, physical therapy, pharmacy, clinical laboratory sciences, and speech, language and hearing sciences. You can be in a pre-professional health designation for your first 45 earned hours. Then we help you move into the specific major that will take you where you want to go.


We can help you investigate many different health career opportunities and majors. We'll work with you one-on-one to connect with university resources to ensure you're on the path right for you. And we'll make it easy for you to get involved with the student organization and volunteer experiences you need to be ready to apply to professional programs.


We sponsor health-related campus student organizations and partner with campus and community organization offering volunteer opportunities for pre-health career students.


We team with the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center to offer a Mentor Program for students interested in Medicine, Nursing, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, and Pharmacy.
