The Atrium: A Pre-Health Pathways Blog

The official blog for Pre-Health Pathways at South Dakota Mines is called The Atrium. In architecture, an atrium is an open space, while in biology the word refers to a chamber within an organism's heart that receives blood. Our blog provides a space for sharing the vital information that is received by our Pre-Health Pathways office to enrich the hearts and minds of our pre-health students. The Atrium features stories about things that our pre-health students are doing on and off of campus, maintains a leaderboard for semester challenges, and provides information to help students navigate their pre-health journeys, such as a tools for exploring different careers, finding local volunteering opportunities, preparing for entrance exams, learning about the application process, and getting connect to all kinds of other pre-health resources.
