Pre-Health Professions Advisory Committee

The Pre-Health Professions Advisory Committee (PHPAC) process guides, advises, and gets to know Loyola students and alumni better to evaluate them personally, academically, and on their professional orientation when applying to medical or dental schools. The Committee process is a means for a Committee Advisor and the entire PHPAC to assess Committee participants for their chosen health profession. The Committee cycle extends from November through the following summer.
Additional details regarding the PHPAC, including a thorough policies & procedures document with key deadlines, can be found on this page.
Though we are not currently accepting applications for the PHPAC, active applicants are encouraged to continually update their applications on the Pre-Health Applications Database through the duration of the cycle.
*If you've previously had a LUC PHPAC Letter released and are planning to re-apply to health professional schools this year: You will go through the re-application process, which has separate policies and timelines from this Committe process. The re-application cycle will launch sometime in April 2021.

Continuity of Services during COVID-19

Given Loyola University Chicago's recently announced policy in response to COVID-19, all in-person programming will be indefinitely suspended and replaced by online appointments. This includes in-person appointments, drop-in advising, and workshops. To help ensure the continuity of services during this time, the Pre-Health Professions Program has curated a series of resources and responses to frequently asked questions.
