Welcome to Trinity College and the Health Professions Advising Committee (HPAC). The HPAC is a group of very committed members of the faculty and staff at Trinity. Our duties are centered around helping students interested in pursuing a career in the health professions (most notably medical, dental, and veterinary school). Upon registering with the HPAC, students are assigned a member of the committee to serve as a secondary advisor (apart from the academic advisor).

What the HPAC does

  • Advises and assists students interested in entering postgraduate educational or professional opportunities in the various fields associated with health professions
  • Attends and organizes monthly information sessions on various aspects of the health professions
  • Drafts Letters of Evaluation for student and alumni applications.
