So you want to be a doctor?
Students studying to enter any health profession after Concordia University are welcome to join the Pre-med Club, a group designed to help students support each other as they prepare for medical school and their future professions. The group also coordinates activities that give members opportunities to gain practical experience in the medical field.
Among the group’s past activities are a trip to the University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha (including the Lied Transplant Center), volunteering for Tabitha Hospice in Seward County and assisting with the Seward Memorial Hospital health fair. The club also brings in speakers from the medical and allied health professions to talk to students and answer questions about various aspects of the health fields.
One of the club’s main goals is to prepare students for graduate studies. The club establishes a network to assist students in preparing for the MCAT, completing applications to medical and other graduate schools and reviewing graduate school requirements. Additionally, upperclassmen share their experiences in order to help younger students make decisions about what field of study to pursue and also share insight on their time in Concordia’s premedical program.
