Collegiate Fellows Program

Define and focus your health care career goals in the Collegiate Fellows Program.

The Parkland Collegiate Fellows Program is designed for those undergraduate students who might not otherwise have the opportunity to work in a health care setting. The practical experience gained from the program is intended to complement the academic training received throughout the school year.

Activities also include tours of various departments and meetings with hospital administrators and medical staff—there's a new experience around every corner!
