Pre-Health Professions Scholars Living Learning Community
The University of New Haven offers a special pre-health professions program for students called the Pre-Health Professions Scholars Program, an elite, application-based undergraduate program designed to support academically strong students in preparing for admission to graduate health training programs including medical school, physician assistant programs, nursing programs, chiropractic schools, dental schools, occupational therapy, physical therapy and more.
If you are selected to be a member of the Pre-Health Professions Scholars Program, you are eligible to live in the PHP Scholars Living Learning Community. We encourage you to do so because it is a great opportunity to get to know the other students in the program and to build lifelong friendships. You will also create study groups and be able to support each other.
This LLC provides a residential home for the students in the program to live and learn together. The LLC will provide extra academic support, mentoring, teambuilding activities, healthcare facilities tours, guest lectures and more for students in the PHP Scholars Program.
You will build special relationships with faculty and alumni who will be your mentors throughout all four years of your undergraduate experience. You’ll make lasting friendships with others who share your interest in the healthcare industry that will last throughout undergrad and beyond.
