Pre-Health Professions Club

GatesThe Gettysburg College Pre-Health Professions Club is open to everyone who is considering a career in medicine or an allied health profession. Working closely with the Health Professions Committee and such College services as the Center for Career Development, the PHPC seeks to provide a forum for students interested in learning more about possible health professions careers through regular club meetings, discussions, guest speakers, field trips, volunteer work, conferences, and graduate and professional school fairs. Come join us!

Club members will be notified of speakers and events through email, once they have completed the Health Professions Registration form and submitted to Kristi Waybright.
