Co-Curricular Activities

Clinical and Volunteer Experiences

Real-world experience in a healthcare setting is a great way to learn more about health careers, determine whether a particular path is right for you, and connect with mentors. Many hospitals, clinics, and healthcare non-profits are in need of enthusiastic volunteers. Depending on your path and past experience, you may also be able to find clinical experience. Taking a gap year is also a great way get an in-depth understanding of a specific field.

Connecting with other pre-health students and exploring pre-health topics and activities is a great way to find support, network with others, and learn more about the opportunities available to you. Learn more about the UNC organizations for pre-health students.
