<p>Hi guys! I'm a new member of this site so I'm still learning my way around, but I figured that this would be a good place to mention what I had in mind. </p>
<pre><code>I am a Junior attending Concord University. My field of study is Pre-Professional Biology, also known as Pre-Med.
I'm wanting to start an organization at my college called Future Doctors of America. I know the name isn't totally original, but it's probably the closest description of my idea. This club would include all students looking to pursue a career in the medical field directly, or one of the many branching fields, so primarily pre-vet and pre-med students; there would be room for other groups that weren't necessarily looking to become a "doctor" per se.
I think that including a variety of scholarships, internships, study sessions, seminars and "field trips" would all be a vital part of the club and would also allow it to receive widespread attention and get this thing a little more common within the college community. I think that it would also be awesome if it would inspire some high schools to start similar programs so that there would be a "'bridge" for involved high school students that would allow them to continue the same, but more advanced program, in college.
I think that this would be a pretty good way to begin a career in the medical field and would have the potential to offer some great opportunities to prospective students. My only issues is, I have no idea how to get the thing going. I know that I would first need to speak with some of my professors and perhaps the Dean of Students, but I wanted to present the idea to everyone here first to see if what I'm envisioning has the chance of becoming a reality.
<p>Any comments, criticisms, or advice is greatly appreciated :)</p>
