Mock Clinic Night

Once a year, students have a chance to interact and network with healthcare providers from various areas of Student Health via a mock clinic. Students are able to get information about what providers do day to day and ask questions they may have. In addition, a dinner is served and students are able to gain hands on experience based on their desired career path. Students are broken into 3 groups: Pre-Medicine, Pre-Physical Therapy, and Pre-Pharmacy.


SHAC Outreach

Once a semester, SHAC invites campus partners and student leaders to engage in a conversation about relevant health topics and Student Health updates. These meetings are held on campus and are open to anyone interested in the topics. Their purpose is to foster communication between Student Health and the Iowa State community.
