Health Professions Advisory Committee
The Health Professions Advisory Committee (HPAC) at Grinnell College coordinates activities involving the preparation for careers in the health professions, and its members serve as advisors for students who are planning a career in one of the health care fields. The committee also gathers information for the evaluation of students, and is responsible for the preparation of committee letters of recommendation. Contact any member of the Health Professions Advisory Committee (see member list at bottom of this page) or the Career Development Office with questions you have about preparing for a career in one of the health professions.
