All health professions schools require letters of recommendation as part of their application process. If you are applying to medical, dental or veterinary school, you may request a special recommendation letter known as the Health Committee (HC) letter. In order to request a health committee letter for the 2017 application cycle (for 2018 matriculation), you are required to attend one of the two HPQ 101 seminars to learn more about the process.
