Collegiate Health Professions Development (CO-HPD) is a
year-long correspondence program with a one-month summer intensive experience.
Participating undergraduate students will strengthen their applications to
professional schools and programs by receiving hands-on training and exposure
to a variety of health careers, by receiving advanced test preparation from our
partners at Kaplan Test Prep, and by cultivating a greater understanding of
current issues and events that are shaping the field of healthcare today. The CO-HPD
Scholars program focuses on primary care and includes student interests
spanning Behavioral Health, Dentistry, Medicine (MD and PA), Nursing, Pharmacy,
Public Health, and Research.
In addition to the CO-HPD Scholars
program, CO-HPD Faculty & Pre-health Advisors workshop
is currently seeking faculty and pre-health advisors from Colorado
universities, colleges, post-secondary institutions and high schools to form a
coordinated network to share consistent messaging about student pre-health
advising, and preparation for health professions and health professional
school. CO-HPD Faculty & Pre-health Advisors participate in a yearly
workshop and networking event, learn about what requirements their advisees need
to pursue careers in healthcare, and discuss questions and various interest
topics with professional school students and admissions personnel.
