Eligibility: Applicants must have an overall high school average of 85%. Students must have an interest in exploring their skills, aptitudes, and interests, and enjoy taking an active role in group discussions.

Procedures: Interested students must submit:
  • A completed Health Profession Project Application, including the essay question on the back of the form
  • A current high school transcript
  • A recent photo
  • A letter of recommendation from a teacher who is familiar with their academic work

Students then sign up for group interviews held at the Brooklyn Campus. Applications are available from College Advisors or teachers who act as liaisons to the Bridge Programs or the director of Bridge Programs.
