Pre-Professional Club

Malone University's Pre-Professional Club was established in 2011 to assist students who are planning to pursue further education at professional schools.

Semi-monthly meetings help students navigate through what can be a complicated application process, present updates in medical literature, and host guest speakers from various professional schools.
