Health Professions Advisement

The Health Professions Information Office (HPIO), located in the College of Agriculture, Life and Physical Sciences Advisement Center, is a special resource for students interested in careers in dentistry, medicine, optometry, pharmacy, physical therapy, physician assistant, podiatry and veterinary medicine; or in various therapy, laboratory or other health careers.

Along with offering guidance concerning requirements of and application procedures to the various schools, this office compiles the preprofessional files of students who will be applying to medical (including osteopathic medical), podiatry, optometry and dental school and works with the Health Preprofessional Committee in recommending those applicants.

Services of the HPIO are available to all SIU Carbondale students—science or non-science majors—and information is available to potential students as well.
