Butler's Pre-Med Society
Butler University's Premedical Society is a great resource for
students who hope to attend medical school after Butler. We will be
providing speakers from various specialties within medicine who
will talk about their experiences in their field, medical school,
and undergraduate studies. There are also many different
opportunities given to students through our exclusive partnerships.
We have a partnership with both St. Vincent Hospital for
volunteering experience in different departments in various
branches of the hospital and with Kaplan, who will provide
resources to help students prepare for the MCAT.

They will also take questions from members of the group about any
aspect of practicing medicine or what it takes to become a
physician. It also provides opportunities for networking with
doctors so students can possibly get some shadowing experience.
