A key to success in the health professions is getting involved in your community. At Colorado State University there are many organizations and groups geared to a wide variety of interests.  Becoming involved outside the classroom will help you to meet new people, get better grades, stay in school, and be more competitive on graduate school applications.

The Center for Advising and Student Achievement sponsors seven clubs for Pre-Health and Pre-Vet students:


Premedica
Pre-Veterinary
Pre-Pharmacy
Pre-Occupational Therapy
Pre-Physical Therapy
Pre-Dental
Pre-Optometry

 

 
                

What's involved?

These student organizations meet regularly during the academic year. Health Profession Clubs: 

  • Sponsor informational speakers by bringing in representatives from health professional programs in the US and abroad
  • Provide an opportunity to meet other students with similar interests in the health professions
  • May offer shadowing experiences in the field and provide leadership opportunities
  • Are actively involved in campus and community service activities.

 

 

 

How do I join a club?

  • Membership is open to all CSU students.  Anyone is welcome to attend club meetings; dues-paying members will have access to privileges such as shadowing, site visits, and events.
