HSSP Program Requirements

As a first-year HSSP student, you will have the opportunity to participate in the following academic and community-based activities:

  • Enroll in the two-semester HSSP core course, Perspectives on Health and Health Care I and II (ALA 106 and 109)
  • Actively participate in HSSP programs and activities, such as the Health & Wellness Conference
  • Participate in weekly programming committee meetings
  • Schedule and attend observations hosted by practicing healthcare professionals
  • Abide by all HSSP community standards, including University Housing's guidelines on substance-free living spaces
  • Promote a positive community experience for all HSSP students
  • Participate in Summer Orientation and Welcome Week activities
  • Schedule individual meetings with HSSP Pre-Health Advisor to discuss academic progress and career goals

Summer Orientation

During Summer Orientation, if you are admitted, you will complete your respective academic units' orientation programs (e.g., LSA, Nursing, Kinesiology, Engineering, SMTD, et cetera). On the second evening of Summer Orientation, you'll meet a current HSSP student (likely a Peer Advisor) at the Michigan Learning Community session in order to learn about program opportunities and responsibilities.

You will register for ALA 106 (Perspectives on Health and Health Care) in the fall (Thursday, 4-6 pm), as well as one of six ALA 106 discussion sections.
