Pre-health student club

The ICPHS (Ithaca College Pre-Health Society) is a group of students that are either interested in pursuing careers in health care, from medicine to veterinary science to public health. They are associated with the Health Professions Advisory Committee (HPAC), which is a faculty-led group. The goal of the ICPHS is help students develop knowledge of health care careers, and to provide programming to assist with applications, testing, and interviews. They are a great resource for advice regarding professional connections, resume-building, shadowing experiences, personal statements, and the application process.
