Where To Go From Here
Now that you've actively begun your professional development by reading through these suggestions, here's what we suggest you do next:
- Look over the HPPLC web information for your program(s) of interest. Either electronically or on paper, make a list of specific requirements or suggestions for the program that reflect professional development as described on this web page.
- Add to your list other professional development items with which you are already engaged or plan to undertake.
- If you are a college freshman, a continuing student, or a returning student, make an appointment to meet with a HPPLC advisor to discuss your professional development and other topics related to your area(s) of interest.
- Remember to keep a professional development journal.
This document was prepared for Indiana University students by the Health Professions and Prelaw Center. It explains some suggestions and options students might wish to consider. Students are ultimately responsible for making decisions appropriate for their given plan of study and professional interests. The information and suggestions on the Professional Development page might apply to any student, not just preprofessional students. It is also important that you refer to those parts of the HPPLC web site that pertain to your particular area(s) of interest. There, you will find more specific information about what students need to do in order to fulfill requirements and become competitive for admission to a given program.
