Welcome to the UMBC PRE-MEDICAL SOCIETY. We are a student-led organization which strives to help not only premed students but also non-premed students gain information about various medical topics including advising, contacts, and other student-related problems. We also participate and organize a plethora of community based activities to benefit the local communities surrounding UMBC and around the world.
Purpose and Aims:
-To provide enrichment for undergraduates seeking to enter the medical profession in the future, through exposure to a variety of opportunities in volunteer work, research, clinical shadowing, and other relevant experiences that will contribute to their personal and academic growth.
-To establish an atmosphere of support and friendship between members, with an emphasis on upper-classmen guiding their younger peers.
-To effectively guide members in their efforts towards a career in medicine
-To offer information about the diversity of organizations and causes with which student can become involved both on and off campus
-To enhance members’ perspectives on the social and theoretical aspects that underpin health care; including but not limited to philanthropy, original research, and humanism
-To network various individuals with similar interests towards the greater collaborative good
