APHS Letter Writer’s Guide

Thank you very much for taking your time to help us assess the potential participants to the Academy of Pre-Health Scholars (APHS) program sponsored by the Center for Diversity Affairs (CDA) at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences!

The CDA has transitioned to all-electronic submission for the letters of recommendation, which can be located here. In order to gain access to the recommendation form, please send a message to Nicholas Pettus, Senior Diversity Specialists, at for the pass code. Also, please send your message through your school-assigned email address so we can verify your position as an instructor.

For additional questions or concerns, please contact Mr. Pettus as well. He can be reached via phone at (501) 686-8952 or email at

Again, thank you very much for you assistance and input regarding the personal characteristics of our 2018 APHS participants.
