University Health Professions Office
The University Health Professions Office (UHPO) provides advising and support to students interested in pursuing careers in the health professions. This includes information about academic preparation at the undergraduate level, health careers pathways, application procedures, and entrance exams. UTSA offers courses that fulfill entrance requirements in most health professions fields, including Medicine, Dentistry, Nursing, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, Physician Assistant, Pharmacy, Veterinary Medicine, Respiratory Care, Dental Hygiene and Optometry, among others. Several dual-degree or early acceptance programs are available for students interested in medicine, dentistry, and nursing. Admission to all health professions schools and programs is highly competitive and involves a separate application process. Admission to UTSA does not guarantee admission into health professions programs at The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio (UTHSCSA).
Students are encouraged to seek advice and consult with the UHPO advising staff early in their college career. The UHPO is located at the Main Campus (Multidisciplinary Studies Building, room 3.03.14). For more information about the UHPO, including appointment and walk-in schedules, call 210-458-5185, or visit the UHPO website.
