As a pre-med student at Bethel, you’ll have the chance to put what you learn in the classroom to use in practical situations. One common way is by collaborating in research with faculty members. Students have also pursued summer research positions at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Md., and in university laboratories across the country.
Research experience can be particularly helpful in preparing you to become an independent learner, as medical school increasingly requires students to be. Other opportunities include shadowing physicians and other health-care professionals and participating in meetings and service projects of the Bethel Pre-Health Professions Club.
