To assist students interested in medical or veterinary careers, the natural sciences programs retain contacts with professionals in these fields through its pre-med advisory committee. This committee assists students in positioning themselves for acceptance to medical, dental or veterinary school. Because admissions to these programs are so competitive, students are advised to identify such goals early in their academic careers and work with the pre-med advisor.
There is also a student-run Pre-Med/Pre-Vet Club, which works in animal/human health activities and helps connect students with internships and volunteer opportunities. The club sponsors one or two trips to medical or veterinary schools each year.
