Pre-Health Professions Scholars Program 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 talented students in preparing for admission to graduate health training programs, including medical school, physician’s assistant programs, nursing programs, chiropractic schools, dental schools, occupational and physical therapy programs, 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. This is a great opportunity to get to know the other students in the program and to build lifelong friendships. You will also create and participate in study groups and be able to support each other.
The Pre-Health Professions Scholars Program 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 connections with your classmates and special relationships with faculty and alumni who will be your mentors long beyond your time at the University of New Haven.
