Biology clubs and organizations are a great way to meet students with shared interests, as well as professional biologists in an informal setting, and also serve as an excellent way to find out about career opportunities and what it takes to make a career in your area of interest.
- Alpha Epsilon Delta – This is a national honor society for students interested in careers in health care professions, including medicine, dentistry, nursing, physical therapy, and others.
