The Pre-Medical Professional Advisory Board encourages students in this track to demonstrate an interest in medical practice by volunteering in the summer at local hospitals or shadowing willing physicians. It is further recommended that they seek summer hospital or physician related internships at least a year in advance of graduation. These activities help to verify to us that our students have the interest and aptitude to continue in the Pre-Medical Track, and to medical schools that they are serious about their career choice. Often a successful internship can generate a strong recommendation from a physician. Additionally, Trine University Career Services can facilitate a job shadow experience or externship, identify contacts for informational interviews, and assist in finding internship opportunities once a student has identified an area of interest.
