Default Applied to a job, feel like I'm under-qualified?

I'm 21, 2 classes away from a bachelor's, and have very little experience in the workforce, let alone in the healthcare industry. That said, students in my major got an email from our career development adviser of a job opening. I applied and got an email from them 2 days later asking to schedule an interview. I definitely don't think I'm qualified for the position and have made it clear on my application that I have very little experience in the healthcare field - to even emailing the interviewer about this and she stated that I am qualified, and that they are working on changing their job requirements. Should I really do the interview, knowing that if given the job, I may just be thrown into the company and not know how to do anything? It seems like a good opportunity with great pay and I'm all for learning new things as I go, it just made me question as to why they didn't get someone who is more qualified?

Advice please!
