About Us

The Health Careers Program of Spelman College initiated in 1971 to advance more and better- qualified young women into the professional/allied health professional schools of medicine, dentistry, osteopathy, optometry, podiatry, pharmacy, veterinary medicine and graduate health programs. Since 1970, the College has been successful in assisting well over 800 of its students in gaining admission to many prestigious professional/ allied health professional institutions.

The program serves as a repository of information.
