The IC Health Professions Advisory Committee (formerly known as the Premedical Sciences Advisory Committee) maintains a file for all students who express an interest in one of the health professions. By the end of a student’s junior year, this file typically includes three to eight faculty evaluations and an information sheet filled out by the student. The students are responsible for requesting evaluations from individual professors. The Committee interviews pre‑med students individually in their junior or senior year. By this time nearly all the pre‑med students are personally well‑known by many of the Committee members. Five to seven members of the Committee attend each interview. After an interview, each attending committee member fills out a brief summary of their impressions. These summaries are added to the student’s file. The Committee does not prohibit students from applying.
