Real-World Experience

Volunteer Opportunities & Clinical Experience

Drury University strongly recommends that students spend time in a clinical setting as early as possible. The experience that the student gains will give a better understanding of the medical profession to show that the student has prior knowledge of future clinical expectations. A Drury University student has the advantage of contacts with local hospitals and health centers. Drury pre-health students are also eligible to participate in the Drury Health Service Corps (DHSC). Students in the DHSC have the opportunity to volunteer one afternoon each week at Jordan Valley Community Health Center and other selected medical facilities. These volunteer experiences allow students to personally interact with a variety of patients in a medical setting while providing important service to the community.

Pre-Health Sciences Internships

Drury University strongly recommends that students spend time in a clinical setting as early as possible. The experience that the student gains will give a better understanding of the medical profession to show that the student has prior knowledge of future clinical expectations. A Drury University student has the advantage of contacts with local hospitals and a pre-established internship with the Mercy Burn and Trauma Unit. Outside of prearranged internships through Drury, there are many other ways to gain valuable experience.
