The Southeastern Association of Advisors for the Health Professions (SAAHP) is comprised of colleges and universities in the Southeastern U.S. concerned with the preparation of students for further study in a wide variety of health-related professions, including allopathic and osteopathic medicine, dentistry, optometry, podiatry, physician assistants, nursing, pharmacy, medical technology, chiropractic, and others. Together with three other regional organizations they comprise the National Association of Advisors for the Health Professions (NAAHP).
Each institution in the SAAHP is represented by its chief pre-health advisor. In the governance of the organization, each school has one vote.
The SAAHP is concerned with effectively sharing information about the preparation of students for entry into the professional programs for the above disciplines. It has also proven effective in liaison with these professional groups, and in turn provides them with a voice for their concerns about pre-professional preparation.
To join the SAAHP, an institution should join the NAAHP, and it will automatically be assigned to the proper regional group. Dues vary slightly by region. The SAAHP annual regional membership dues are $20.
