Professional Program Days

Mercy College's Professional Program Days welcomes all students who are new to their professional program of study with a series of activities designed to bring students, faculty and staff closer together.  This session is designed for those who are new to Mercy College as well as those who have been attending Mercy College but will now start classes within their professional programs.

All students are required to attend Professional Program Day prior to starting their professional program of study. Each session provides information to familiarize students with services, procedures and policies of individual programs that are necessary for success during on-campus coursework as well as while in the many clinical experiences you will have in hospitals and other settings. Students will hear from their school dean, academic program chair and meet with their faculty advisor.  Students also receive information from their first semester program instructors, which will help to make the first day of class that much more successful.
