University Health Professions Office
The University Health Professions Office (UHPO) provides academic guidance and support to students interested in pursuing careers in the health professions. UTSA offers courses that fulfill entrance requirements in most health professions fields, including Medicine, Dentistry, Nursing, Dental Hygiene, Respiratory Care, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, Physician Assistant, Pharmacy, Veterinary Medicine, and Optometry. Several dual-degree or early acceptance programs are available for students interested in medicine, dentistry, and nursing. Admission to professional schools is highly competitive and involve separate application processes. Admission to UTSA does not guarantee admission into health professions programs at UT Health - 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 on-call options, call 210-458-5185, or visit the UHPO website.
