When senior MED Club president Hannah Wolk heard about the MED Club two years ago, she felt very excited to join.

“I joined because I have always been interested in going into a medical field, but I wasn’t sure exactly what I wanted to be,” Wolk said.

Wolk said she always was interested in the medical field because both of her parents pursue a career in that field.

“Both of my parents work in the medical field, so I have been exposed to it my whole life. I always wanted to work in medicine,” Wolk said. “I’m planning on going to nursing school then graduate school to become a pediatric nurse practitioner.”

Wolk said she feels very enthusiastic about events coming up for MED Club.

“I’m really looking forward to our field trip to HCMC (Hennepin County Medical Center). We are still working with someone coordinating the details, but it will happen at some point,” Wolk said.

Wolk said her goals for MED Club involve having more students coming to meetings and finding a new president for the club next year.

“A personal goal for the club is to find someone who is good fit to lead the club as president next year. A group goal is to increase attendance at our meetings,” Wolk said.

Wolk said she encourages more students to come to MED Club meetings to learn more about careers in the medical field.

“MED club is a great way for students interested in a career in the medical field, but might not be sure exactly what they want to go into because we bring in a wide-range speakers,” Wolk said. “It allows students to find out more detailed information about different career options.”
