Pair a Docs

The Pair a Docs Club is a group for students studying to become professionals in the medical fields including but not limited to DO, MD, DVM, PT/PTA or DDS/DMD.  Club meetings and field trips will focus on mentorship/advising in pre-professional coursework, career exploration, and networking.  In addition, students develop relationships and support systems with their fellow students and advisers.   Our goal is to provide unique experiences that will help student decide if a medical career is right for them and empower them to reach their goals.
