Carnegie Mellon University

Doctors of Carnegie Society (DOCS)

Organization Description

The purpose of the DOCS is to provide students with information related to the health professions and related application processes, to increase health awareness, and to be of beneficial service to the Carnegie Mellon University community. Whether you are planning a career in biomedical engineering, geriatric medicine, or health care policy, DOCs can be a great source of information, networking, and experience for you.

Throughout the year, the Doctors of Carnegie host campus-wide health events, medical-student Q&A panels, and instructional seminars to guide pre-medical students to their futures. DOCS is also involved in at least one large-scale community service event every semester, holds an annual on-campus blood drive, and hosts the Health Symposium in the spring semester. Through several mentoring programs, we also connect students to upperclassmen, current medical students, and the Health Professions Program (HPP). Joining DOCS is a great way to learn about and build your medical school application, develop connections with other pre-medical students and our HPP advisor, Dr. Jason D'Antonio, and to get involved in meaningful community service.
