The University of Alabama’s Office of Health Professions Advising (OHPA) works with students interested in a variety of health profession careers. Below are common career pathways that our students seek. While our guides outline general pre-requisite courses for each health profession, we encourage our students to check with the individual graduate programs that they are interested in to decide what is best for them. Find our “Are you interested in a career in Health Professions” here (PDF).
If you are interested in pursuing a health profession that is not listed below, please come in to speak with us and we will be happy to work with you on your pre-health career plan. Current students and alumni can make an appointment at www.as.ua.edu/appointment.
