Composite Letter Update!

The Group Mandatory Check-Up is the same as the Group Pre-Health Holistic Review (PHHR). If you have completed one, you have completed the other! Once you have met the group meeting requirement, you are eligible to schedule the 1:1 Follow-Up with your advisor. Students only need to complete a single 1:1 Follow-Up. 2017 Composite Letter applicants must complete the 1:1 Follow-Up prior to the December 1st deadline.


Alumni interested in applying for a Composite Letter who did not complete their Group PHHR during their undergraduate years will need to watch the Mandatory Check-Up video (posted within the next week to the PHMO YouTube Channel and other social media) and complete a quiz with a score of 100%. More information coming soon.


The Composite Letter Manual will be posted before the end of September. Students interested in applying for a 2017 Composite Letter (For the 2018 Application Cycle) should be prepared to complete the Composite Letter Orientation Quiz that accompanies the manual by December 15th.

Questions, Answers, & Social Media

The PHMO has four goals. They are to (1) Introduce students to holistic development and guide them to grow into well-rounded candidates for the health professions. (2) Encourage students to self-assess: to reflect on their experiences, and their interest and readiness to pursue a career in the health professions. (3) Connect students to resources and opportunities on campus and in the community. (4) 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.
