Student Health Clubs

At Loyola, there are more than 85 student organizations. Within Pre-Health, there are 2 organizations you can join. These include Health Professions Organization (HPO) and the Minority Association of Pre-Medicine Students (MAPS). We encourage you to learn about these organizations and get involved. They offer various resources and mentorship to help students navigate the Pre-Health field. 


Health Professions Organization (HPO)


The mission of LUHPO is to help students gain in-depth understanding of the many types of health careers that are currently available. We seek to help students achieve the standard of academic performance that will make them competitive for admission to graduate programs in health professions. The HPO invites student members of all science student organizations at Loyola to join them in this work.

Contact the 2020-2021 president Jacob Landry at to find out more.

Minority Association of Pre-Medicine Students (MAPS)


The mission of the Minority Association of Pre-Health Students is to enhance the recruitment of under-represented students into health care fields, and to help participants become successful candidates for professional health and medical programs. The purpose of the organization is to provide under-represented pre-health students with the knowledge, skills and experiences that are both pre-requisite and concomitant to professional participation in health care fields. Ultimately, the organization endeavors to assist the College of Medicine in recruitment and retention of eligible minority applicants into graduate and medical programs.
