About the Club

The Pre-Health Professions Club is a club that engages high school students in a career development continuum to explore health care professions in medicine, nursing and pharmacy. It is a partnership that involves a community of post-secondary institutions working together with provincial school divisions, First Nations band schools, regional health authorities, communities, and independent practicing professionals to provide career development experiences for secondary level students.
