Health Professions Committee

Cornell has created a Health Professions Committee to assist you in processing your application in a timely manner, writing you a committee letter of recommendation, and uploading your letters of recommendation into VirtualEvals (or other on-line site used by the health professions school). The committee should be utilized by all medical school applicants, and can be used by students applying to dental, veterinary, physician assistant, optometry, or other health professions programs.
