Credentials File Information:

You have questions, We have answers!

The PHMO has four goals. They are to:


  • Introduce students to holistic development and guide them to grow into well-rounded candidates for the health professions.


  • Encourage students to self-assess: to reflect on their experiences, and their interest and readiness to pursue a career in the health professions.


  • Connect students to resources and opportunities on campus and in the community.


  • Introduce students to the skills and competencies they will need to become successful healthcare professionals.


We work with Emory undergraduates once they show interest in healthcare professions until they are ready to apply to healthcare professional schools.
