Opportunities and Resources
Walker Biology Club
The Walker Biology Club encourages a feeling of loyalty and respect for the ideals and standards of Biology and to create a congenial atmosphere wherein they may be pursued. Also, we want to promote an interest in the fields of Biology. The Walker Biology club meets, on average, monthly, bringing in special guests and experts in the field, participating in service projects and exploring the facets of Biology.
Pre-Med/Allied Health Honor Society
We are dedicated to assisting Campbell University undergraduate students who have chosen to pursue a career in the field of Health Sciences. We work to assist students in making decisions regarding vocation, admissions requirements, and choices of graduate education. Premedical/Allied Health Honor Society is open to students who have an overall 3.0 GPA and at least 3.0 GPA in science. Three semesters of study must be completed and members must rank in the top 35% of their class.
Internships are not required. Students may obtain academic credit for participating in a practical learning experience outside Campbell University but often simply choose to gain work experience to strengthen their resumes for post-graduate studies and full-time employment. If the internship is for academic credit, the experience must address a biology-related problem, involve college-level work, and have a component of active, hands-on activity. Up to six (6) upper-level academic credits may be earned in this way.
Recent examples of the varied experiences gained by students in the Department of Biological Sciences include internships at the NC Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores, SeaWorld, Walt Disney World’s Animal Kingdom, Student Conservation Service & US National Park Service, Northwest Georgia Science Museum, Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) and paramedics training/experience, “Summer Program for Future Doctors” (SPFD) @ East Carolina University Brodie School of Medicine, and GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) Women in Science program, to name but a few.
