How can you get involved with ViTAL?
A main goal of ViTAL is to have our student audience be as involved with our club activities as possible. This aligns with our goal to be interdisciplinary and allow students to engage with healthcare in non-traditional ways. Check out the available opportunities below and if you are interested or have an idea of a new way to be involved, email us!
E-Board elections are held every year in the spring. Check out the Meet the Team page to learn more about our team members and their responsibilities!
Do you have a topic in healthcare that you are interested in and want to write a piece about? Reach out to us to become a writer for our Medium and get to feature your unique take and ideas to ViTAL and the Northeastern community.
Interested in the process of writing for a podcast episode? ViTAL has our own podcast, called ViTAL Chats, and we would love your input on potential topics to cover and give you the opportunity to create a script
ViTAL Inspire Program
ViTAL Inspire Program (VIP) is ViTAL's mentorship program for 1st and 2nd-year students mentored by upperclassmen to help navigate their journey through ViTAL, Northeastern, and the healthcare realm! Each semester, VIP held a series of meetings and workshops, from mentor-mentee meet-and-greets to resume reviews to interview preparations. In their meetings, mentees discuss their professional goals and get advice from their mentors. Ultimately, mentees are able to learn about themselves as well as the vast opportunities within the healthcare.
ViTAL also aims to give back to the Boston community by organizing community service events where students can volunteer with fellow ViTAL members! In the past, we've hosted both fundraisers and in-person events for organizations like Greater Boston Food Bank, Friendshipworks, Project Heal, and Fenway Cares. Email us if you have an organization you'd like ViTAL to volunteer with and visit our social media to see past/upcoming volunteering events!
