Sewanee Health Professions Society
SHPS is a student-run group, overseen by the Office of Medical and Health Programs. It was initiated at the request of Beth Phillips C’91, an ER Physician. The goal of this group is to provide leadership opportunities for pre-med and pre-health students. Additionally, SHPS serves as a support structure for students and as a place to learn about networking and finding health-related internships, jobs, and information about graduate schools (medical, veterinary, nursing, dental, physical therapy, etc.). The group is led by an executive board consisting of a president, vice president, secretary/tutor coordinator, treasurer, and project manager(s) in each of the health disciplines; all are elected annually in April.
