Programs of Study and Sample Academic Plans
IVC Health Sciences club is a place for pre-health students to gather and explore the diversity of the healthcare field. We hosted speakers and shadowing events and welcomed physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, optometry school students, surgeons, and so many other professions. The Health Sciences club was what first introduced me to the diversity in healthcare professions and how it guided me to nursing, which is my current major. Join IVC Health Sciences to share experiences, engage in IVC campus projects, and fundraising activities.
