There are multitudes of opportunities for students to get involved in the campus community.

Keep in mind – how you dedicate your time will help shape your application for professional school.

 

Student Organizations

SDSU provides many opportunities for students to join clubs and organizations. There is no “one perfect” organization for a student planning a career in the health professions, just the one you feel is right for you. Join organizations that you feel will best widen your perspective and exposure to the fields of health and healthcare. HPAO works with several student-organizations, and we encourage you to pursue interests about which you are passionate. The pre-health community at SDSU is constantly growing and there is at least one student organization for almost every health profession you can think of.

Study Abroad

Spending time abroad during your undergraduate career can provide you with diverse experiences that can help you on your path towards a career in the health field. Benefits include learning a foreign language, working with other cultures, and completing humanitarian work. Although it can be an extremely rewarding experience, studying abroad requires careful planning and preparation, especially while trying to plan your busy pre-health class schedule.
