Many students have unanswered questions about this field, and Pulse aims to give them the answers they are looking for. Through preliminary surveys, it was found that over 50% of high school students consider health sciences as a definite possibility for their future career. Of those students, almost three quarters have unanswered questions regarding universities and field prospects. Project Pulse offers an opportunity for such students to find answers and receive accurate and reliable information about the field they plan on pursuing.
