About the Committee

The Health Professions Advisory Committee, chaired by Dr. Roxanne Prichard (Psychology Department), is comprised of faculty from science, social science, and humanities divisions and staff from Academic Counseling and Support, and the Career Development Center.  The Health Professions Advisory Committee provides a committee evaluation letter for students and recent alumni who are applying to allopathic and osteopathic medical schools.   The committee letter is based on the student’s academic and disciplinary record at St. Thomas, recommendations from three St. Thomas faculty members, and a formal panel interview with the applicant.
