University of Michigan-Flint Premedical Studies
student life and leadership
UM-Flint has a rich history of student involvement and activism. Between the Student Government, Campus Activities Board, The Michigan Times, Greek Life, and over 80 academic, social, cultural, political, religious, and athletic clubs, you’re bound to become involved. When you do, we’re big enough to offer you the choices of major clubs and organizations—but small enough so that you never become a nameless member in them.
Students who are involved in campus life and activities are shown to perform better academically—and, as a benefit, receive a well-rounded and meaningful university experience. By becoming involved in campus life and advancing to leadership positions, you will demonstrate to medical schools that you are capable of handling increasing levels of professional and personal responsibility.
Beyond sharing common goals and interests, in joining an organization you also gain a built-in social network that will provide you with friends for life. To that end, you might consider meeting new friends and study buddies in the Premed Club. According to the mission of The Premed Club at UM-Flint, it “…focuses on preparing students for entry into medical school or other medically oriented professional schools prior to matriculation. Some of the events provided include practice entry exams, professional speakers, and tours of other campuses. In addition to providing the resources and information to help students accomplish their goals, many of the senior members know what is required of students trying to enter the medical field. Their advisement and help is invaluable to lower-division students.” If you are interested in or have ever considered entering the medical field, becoming a member of this club will be a valuable asset.

Equally as important as joining the Premed Club is finding a way to be a leader on campus. Serving on the UM-Flint student government or on the executive board of a club is a fantastic way of demonstrating your ambition. If you’re the type of person who likes to influence change, our student government is exceedingly active in shaping policy at UM-Flint. For more information, please visit Student Life.
