James Sharer is planning on becoming a doctor once he completes his education. He is currently a student at Pennsylvania State University, where he is majoring in Biology with a Vertebrate Physiology Option.

“After my four undergraduate years at The Pennsylvania State University, I plan on attending medical school,” James Sharer says. “I want to earn my doctorate and pursue a career in medicine so that I can dedicate my life to helping those in need.”

Along the way, James Sharer has been a research intern at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. He has also been a member of Penn State’s Biology Club

The Penn State Biology Club, James Sharer says, is a group of Penn students who share a common interest in the study of biology. The club provides useful interaction among biology majors and faculty, and provides awareness of career opportunities and graduate studies in the field.

Members of the Penn State University Biology Club also provide tutoring services to other Penn undergraduates and maintain a Facebook page to keep all interested students up-to-date with all of the club’s activities. There has been talk of publishing a newsletter that would discuss current biological research, too.

Other ideas for the Penn State University Biology Club include bringing in guest speakers to talk about specific areas relating to their common interest, and taking occasional trips to attractions like the local science center.

James Sharer has maintained a 3.74 grade point average during his years at Penn State University, and is on track to graduate in the spring of 2016.
