Is there any type of student organization related to
medicine that I can get involved in?
There is a PreMed Society at Ithaca College. This organization is run by students and they meet 4-6 times per semester. The PreMed Society serves as a network for students to help provide information on where to get volunteer experience, how to prepare for the MCATs, and how to go about applying to medical school. In addition, they try to bring in speakers, such as representatives from schools, physicians, or other health care professionals, to speak with students and are involved in service projects.
The PreVet Club is a student-run organization for students interested in veterinary medicine. The clubs meets 4-6 times over a semester. The club organizes fund raisers for local animal organizations, helps student find local animal volunteer opportunities and brings in speakers to talk with students about the field.
