It’s not about the number of things you participate in but about the quality of your involvement and your experience. Extracurricular activities are important to develop interpersonal skills, discipline, compassion and teamwork will better prepare you as a healthcare provider.
At Wright State, students can participate in community service, undergraduate research, leadership and development programs, teaching and tutoring, student organizations, and mentoring. Listed below are a few of the student organization options for pre health.
The Pre-Health Society is a student organization at Wright State devoted to aiding you in your understanding of the healthcare field. Each semester they bring in numerous speakers from various areas of the healthcare to give you an understanding of the many career possibilities within the field and an in-depth look into the lives of healthcare professionals, residents, and many others. They also inform you of what you need to do to reach the goals of your future; whether that be talking to the premed advisor, getting volunteer time, or keeping you up-to-date on important and social events.
