Student Organization Spotlight:
The Pre-Health Club
Hampton University's Pre-Health club is designed to expose graduate and undergraduate students to careers in medicine, dentistry, and other allied health professions.
Last year the club began the year with a Pre-Health induction ceremony for students to publicly make a commitment to their interest in the health professions. This year many undergraduate students have been admitted into medical school early identification programs such as, the MeHarry Medial School, the Virginia Commonwealth School of Medicine and the Boston University School of Medicine.
Professor Michael Druitt, director of the Pre-Health Club said, "Our goal is to not only inform them of the proper prerequisites they need to have, but to also serve as biweekly advisors."
The program also provides supplemental instruction to help students improve in the areas of biology, chemistry, and organic chemistry.
"In addition our medical science students, Maeturah Harmon, Howard Pratt have been admitted to medical school and Doug Sanford has been accepted to dental school. We are strengthening our program to improve and increase the number of African American students entering the medical industry," Druitt said.
