Duke prehealth students have many different majors from biology or chemistry to English or history. Some study abroad in Costa Rica, Africa, China, and Spain. Others spend time at the Duke Marine Laboratory and study in the Duke in New York and Duke in LA programs. Some are athletes. Some become EMTs. Many volunteer or work in research labs and enroll in research independent studies, sometimes doing a senior honors thesis. Duke students tutor in local elementary schools, work in summer camps, volunteer in Duke Medical Center, participate in local, national and international service (often through Duke Engage), and contribute to university life. They fill their summers with explorations out of the classroom. Some students enter with no health care experience and few science courses. Others come to Duke already committed. There is a place for everyone at Duke, with opportunities at all levels.
