Health Professions Advising Office

Welcome to the Health Professions Advising Office (HPAO) website. This site has been constructed to guide you and inform you about our services. The HPAO, which was started by Dr. Miles D. McCarthy in 1963, has helped hundreds of students gain admission to health professions schools. Our students have gained entry into some of the nation’s most prestigious schools including Harvard, Stanford, John Hopkins Albert Einstein College of Medicine, as well as all of the UC campuses. CSUF is also 17th in the nation in graduating Latinos with bachelor’s degrees in health fields.  We hope that you can become a piece of our history while embarking on your lifelong dream of becoming a health professional.
