Advising and Support
While rigorous and challenging, the atmosphere for PB-PMHPP students at Duquesne University is supportive and positive. The PB-PMHPP is a small and selective program with enrollment varying each year between 10-35. Students are expected to be active and participate in all PB-PMHPP functions. All students receive direct guidance from their advisor and the PB-PMHPP 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 PB-PMHPP 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.
