Hey,
I'm a Senior in High School and I'm looking to start a medical club of sorts for my high school. I don't really know what activities we would do but I would really appreciate it if someone could give me ideas and help

P.S. My college apps are already in, I really want to do this to help fellow students see what a medical career would be like. And I hope I posted this in an appropriate place.

Well, you could always contact various doctors, nurses, fire dept, etc to come in and speak to your class/club. Also, you can try to plan trips to shadow specific areas of the medical field.
Agreed with the above.

In addition, discuss the interests of other members of the group and see what field of medicine they'd like to learn more about. Health reform is obviously an extremely important topic for current and future physicians so I'd suggest informational sessions to learn more about that as well. You could even have debates amongst members on various stances in health reform.
