Pre-Health Instructions for Committee and Recommendation Letters

In recent years many health professions schools have stated a preference for a summative committee letter of evaluation in addition to input who know the applicant. A Committee Letter of Evaluation (CLE) will be offered to students applying to medical, allopathic, osteopathic, dental, podiatry, or optometry schools.
 

If you desire a Committee Letter from the Behrend College Pre-professional Evaluation Committee, follow the instructions listed below.

Criminal investigations often begin away from the crime scene, in a curtained hospital room, where nurses treat and counsel the victims of violent crime or abuse.

“When victims need medical attention, they are brought to nurses first,” said Amy LeSuer, a lecturer in nursing at Penn State Erie, The Behrend College. “We help them before law enforcement officials can.”
