Dear Fellow Pre-Health Professions Students,
On behalf of the Lincoln Pre-Health Society, welcome to Elon University! The Lincoln Pre-Health Society welcomes students of all majors to join and includes members from a variety of academic and extracurricular interests. The purpose of the society is to provide students with support and guidance on the journey towards a career in Medicine, Dentistry, Veterinary Medicine, Physical Therapy, and other healthcare professions.
The Lincoln Pre-Health Society is a group of pre-health students and academic advisors that meet every other week. Meetings are held in an open discussion format and each meeting focuses on a different topic. Topics include how to get involved in service in the community, writing a personal statement, getting an internship, tackling the interview, and the application process to provide a realistic understanding of the pathway to becoming a physician, physician’s assistant, nurse, nurse practitioner, dentist, optometrist, physical therapist, or veterinarian. Guest speakers within these professional careers are brought in to speak with the group. Students also enjoy sharing their stories and experiences and the student panel in the spring is one of the highlights of the year!
The Lincoln Pre-Health Society provides the environment for students to succeed, and encourages its members to be well-rounded students. This organization exists to provide guidance in the steps to prepare for and apply for careers in the health professions.
Make sure to utilize all of the resources the university has for you. It is always great to get an early start. The Lincoln Pre-Health Society is here for you along the way, and encourages you to enjoy your time here at Elon University.
