Students for Community Medicine

With a goal of increasing the number of Whittier students committed to working in the medical and health sciences fields—particularly in underserved and disadvantaged areas—members of this organization participate in hands-on learning activities, professional networking, and attend Q&A events featuring alumni in the field. One popular, annual event is the "Sutures Workshop," where students learn from a local physician's assistant about how to treat wounds utilizing three common suturing techniques.
