Alpha Epsilon Delta 

Alpha Epsilon Delta is a national health pre-professional honors society dedicated to the encouragement and recognition of excellence in preprofessional health scholarship. This chapter particularly focuses on forming mentorship relationships between upperclassmen and underclassmen in pre-professional health specialties at Carthage College. This chapter is distinguished from other health organizations by focusing on upperclassmen leadership, professional development and opportunities pertinent to professional school studies, and building mentee relationships with underclassmen.


Pre-Occupational Therapy Club 

Join the Pre-OT club to learn more about the field of occupational therapy! The club meets bi-weekly to discuss the Pre-OT four-year plan, volunteering, observation hours, graduate program requirements, and more. The club leadership often organizes group outings to volunteer in the community and help members gain valuable experiences for graduate school applications.

The primary goal of the Pre-Dental Club is to offer support as well as connections to other students who have similar interests. The club aims to fulfill all of the necessary needs that Dental Schools anticipate seeing. The Pre-Dental Club also prepares you to apply to dental school by revising/editing your four-year plan accordingly.
