The Premedical Committee at Missouri State University seeks to help students get accepted to medical school. Premedical students receive advice from committee members on maintaining their GPA, studying for the MCAT, and writing personal statements. Premedical students also need to understand the multi-faceted aspect of health care delivery, so advisors counsel them to gain patient exposure through jobs at local hospitals, volunteering with hospice, or shadowing physicians across multiple specialties. Another important aspect of preparing for medical school is leadership development. Premedical students gain valuable leadership experience through campus organizations, serving as the captain of their athletic team, leading worship in faith-based organizations, and providing job training to others at work.
