Read about the Health Professions Panel that was held on November 4th following the annual Graduate School Fair.

On November 4th the Emory & Henry Health Professions Club welcome three Emory alumni to speak at the annual graduate school fair. In this panel discussion, the speakers answered questions about what it was like getting into their respective programs and their day-to-day experiences. Kyle Boden, a second year medical student at Quillen College of Medicine, explained how his classes at Emory & Henry prepared him well for medical school. A first year physical therapy student at Emory & Henry’s Marion campus, Will Bodfish had helpful advice for both getting into graduate programs as well as coping with the increased workload. Finally, Dr. Beth Walton gave students an overview of what a typical day is like as a clinical psychologist. Dr. Walton received her Doctorate of Psychology from Xavier University in Cincinnati. At the end of the panel students were able to ask any specific questions they had about graduate school in general or the represented fields. Following the session, three attendees received their choice of test preparation kit (e.g., GRE, MCAT) as a door prize. The Health Professions Club will resume meeting in the spring semester.
