Watch "A day in the life of a PT student"

The Office of Pre-Health Professsions Student Development and the Office of Career Services are offering students applying to any program in the health professions the opportunity to participate in a mock interview.

There are two dates scheduled for these activities: 

  • Monday, Oct 2 from 3-5PM
  • Friday, Nov 3 from 2-4PM

Each afternoon will be divided into two, one-hour sessions, with 10 interviews being conducted simultaneously.  Students will be given a 30-minute interview, followed by 20 minutes of feedback.  Because of the very limited number of spaces (40 total, between the two dates), it will be necessary to reserve a spot.  Priority will be given to students applying to their health professions program this cycle. 

To reserve a spot, students should contact t prehealthprofessions@unm.edu with a preferred date/time. At the time the reservation is placed, we are asking each student to submit their personal statement, list of experiences and any other writing completed for their application. The student will receive an email confirming his/her reservation.

It is strongly encouraged that any student who has not attended the workshop "Preparing for your Health Professions Interview" do so before the mock interview.  That workshop will be offered on:

  • Monday, Sept 18 from 4-5PM
  • Tuesday, Sept 26 from 9-10AM
  • Tuesday, Oct 10 from 9-10AM
  • Monday, Oct 23 from 4-5PM
The interview workshop is held in the University College Conference Room, rooms 265-266 of the University Advisement and Enrichment Center.  No reservation is necessary. Please contact prehealthprofessions@unm.edu with any questions.


It is highly recommended that students interested in the UNM Physical Therapy Program attend a formal advisement session to obtain the latest information about our program. These hour-long advisement sessions are usually held once or twice a month from March through September to provide an opportunity for students to gather important information, to meet a PT Program faculty member, and to have their specific questions answered.

Please register for these advisements sessions by emailing HSC-UNMPTProgram@salud.unm.edu

Any additional questions can be answered by our Director of Admissions, Dr. Beth Moody Jones at bmjones@salud.unm.edu or (505) 925-4584.
