We assist both students and alumni applying to health professions programs with a review of your application materials, access to a mock interview, and collection and submission of your letters of recommendations. Students and alumni within two years of graduation may also request a committee letter.

If you are planning to apply in an upcoming cycle, please make sure to contact us at prehealth.advising@pomona.edu so we can include you in our communications and provide you with detailed instructions on how to participate in The Pomona Process. 

All presentations provided on campus are recorded and made available to those off campus or out of the area.
