Experience and Internships

Volunteering 

There are various health related opportunities within and outside of the health concentrated spectrum. Visit Bradley's Lewis J. Burger Center for Student Leadership and Public Services for listings of volunteer opportunities in our local Peoria community. The Center is located in Harper Hall 20, or call (309) 677-2428.

Internships and Job Shadowing 

In addition to taking pre-requisite coursework and earning good grades, another key to health career development and becoming a competitive applicant is gaining experience through internships and job shadowing.  Also consider contacting faculty within your major department regarding research opportunities.
