Health Professions Portfolio & Readiness Assessment Discussion

*PBPM and MMS students should consult with their program’s advisors regarding the available application support

For simplicity, the following information assumes application to allopathic (MD) medical school. Deadlines and metric requirements may vary (slightly or significantly) for candidates for dentistry, optometry, and osteopathic or podiatric medicine. These candidates, as well, those who have identities underrepresented in medicine, should discuss their professional plans with the Health Professions Advisor at the time of enrollment in the Health Professions Portfolio (HPP) Blackboard site.

Health Professions Portfolio (HPP)

All juniors, seniors & alums considering application to medical school are encouraged to develop their HPP by enrolling in the HPP Blackboard site after attending an information session in October. If you are not able to attend a fall session in person, you may email prehealth@uvm.edu between October – December to receive the enrollment link and further instructions.

Readiness Assessment Discussion (RAD)

A Readiness Assessment Discussion with the Health Professions Advisor is available to all candidates who submit a draft of their HPP. RAD is required for those seeking a Committee Letter and will occur in January, February, or March. For those completing an HPP but not participating in CLP this cycle, the RAD is available at any time after submission of the HPP.
