Welcome to the Health Professions Club Website!
The Health Professions Club serves as a resource for students interested in the Health Professions. Through our meetings, students are introduced to various fields of health care. Our speakers range from primary health care providers such as nurses, physicians, optometrists, etc.. to representatives of professional and graduate schools, as well as individuals with volunteer or research opportunities. Questions from students are welcomed and encouraged.
Besides our speaker, the meetings serve as a time for students to discuss their path to professional school. The process can be a little overwhelming at some points, but our older students can offer good advice and some reassurance. Our meetings also serve as a place for discussion about various club opportunities and events.
All members are required to attend at least 2 of the 3 large group meetings, and any 3 special interest group meetings meetings this semester. You can get other situations or excuses approved the Executive board if you cannot attend the 5 meetings. In addition, members must complete 6 points of service as outlined on the service page. Finally, members must pay dues of $10 each semester due at our last large group meeting, November 19th (Fall) and April 29 (Spring). Our final large group meeting for the semester is Tuesday, April 29th in the Table Rock Room with pizza at 6:00 and the meeting at 6:30. Club dues ($10) must be turned in by this date!
The next Big Group meeting, and last of the semester, will be on April 29th in the Table Rock Room in the Student Union. Your $10 dues must be paid to Treasurer Shelby Williams by this date.
