Pre-Health Club is an organization for students interested in entering a healthcare-related field. Pre-Health Club brings in speakers from medical, graduate, veterinary, occupational therapy, physical therapy, physicians assistant, pharmacy, dental, and chiropractic schools that include admissions representatives and previous Carthage students. These talks are geared toward helping students learn about different schools and better understand the admissions process and requirements. Pre-Health Club also brings upper and underclassmen together in order to give underclassmen an opportunity to ask about what courses to take and how to prepare for tests like the MCAT and GRE, and application questions. The club also gives members information about internship and shadowing opportunities.
