Advising and Support
While rigorous and challenging, the atmosphere for PMHP-PB students at Duquesne University is supportive and positive. The PMHP-PB is a small and selective program with enrollment varying each year between 10-35. Students are expected to be active and participate in all PMHP-PB functions. All students receive direct guidance from their advisor and the PMHP-PB department on selection of course work, gaining volunteer experience, preparation for the MCAT or other appropriate admissions tests, and completing the complex application process. Under the guidance of the PMHP-PB advisor, it is the responsiblity of the student to research his/her intended medical or professional school requirements and programs of interest. As requirements may vary by school, this is essential for student success. Students are encouraged and expected to be proactive in their own career goals.
