Pre-Health Student Groups
Working with the HPAC and the CLS, these student-led groups offer opportunities to learn about entering various health fields, facilitate connections with alumni, and communicate about shadowing and volunteer service in the community.
Center for Careers, Life and Service
The CLS has a Graduate and Professional School page on GrinnellShare (Grinnell College login required). Sarah Barks in the CLS can help match you up with job shadowing, internships, and meaningful community service experiences with a health focus. She can also review your application essay with you, help you select programs and schools, and conduct mock interviews.
