Schroer named pre-med adviser
Julie Schroer, adviser and lecturer of biological sciences, has been named adviser for students in pre-medicine areas of study. She assists students in such things as their course planning and gathering information on admission requirements for specific professional schools they are considering following their graduation from NDSU.
“First and foremost, I meet with students. I find the answers to pretty much anything they have questions about, because it’s important they know what they are getting into,” said Schroer, who joined the NDSU faculty this fall after teaching at Bismarck State College for 10 years. “I’m trying to get the word out, getting the students to know that I am here to answer questions and provide information.”
The students she advises usually come from the fields of pre-medicine, pre-dental, pre-chiropractic or pre-optometry. Schroer said she also has met with students who are in other areas, including pre-physical therapy and pre-mortuary science.
Schroer plans to begin tracking the progress of NDSU’s pre-med students, discovering things like how many students are accepted for professional programs versus how many apply. She also hopes to build a network of area medical professionals, allowing students to participate in volunteer experiences in their fields of interest.
A native of Perham, Minn., Schroer earned her bachelor’s degree from the University of Minnesota-Morris and her master’s degree in botany from NDSU. She also is co-owner of a greenhouse called Jean’s – The Right Plant Place in Perham. She is available at 1-9789 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
