HRP 101-Experiencing the University Transition
All freshmen declaring a pre-health major (any School of Health Professions undergraduate program or pre-SHP with undeclared major) are required to complete a first year experience course during their first fall term. The course HRP 101 is designed to ease the transition between high school and university experiences and to prepare students for success in health professions majors. The course is three semester hours credit, and is designed to be delivered in a seminar format. Students interact with faculty, advisors, and other students to learn academic skills and personal lifestyle management tactics to make their freshman experience positive and academically rewarding. Social interaction and engagement in the UAB community are key goals as well.
