The HCF is for students interested in health careers and has something for you no matter where you are in the exploration process.
It's for freshman who are still exploring a variety of health career options, sophomores who are starting to narrow their interests and are looking to develop their student portfolio through meaningful experiences, and upperclassmen who are preparing to apply to a health degree program and want to network with admissions representatives, or secure a new volunteer experience.
Offered in the fall of each year, the Health Careers Fair showcases:
- All UMN health related degree programs (or certificates, or minors) at the undergraduate, graduate, and professional level
- UMN departments that provide resources and support for pre-health students, i.e. Learning Abroad Center, Center for Community-Engaged Learning, etc.
- UMN pre-health student organizations
- Minneapolis-St. Paul community organizations that provide volunteer, work, internship, or research opportunities for pre-health students
Mark your calendar now for this once-a-year event. Don’t miss it! Attendance is free and no advance registration is required. Student sign-in will take place at the door. The primary audience is UMN undergraduate students, but is open to the public. We welcome high school students or other university students from the metro area who may have an interest in attending.
The Health Careers Fair is a way to explore a wide variety of health degree programs from the UMN (undergrad, grad, professional), and learn about ways to develop a strong portfolio of experiences like pre-health student groups and community volunteer organizations.
Our other annual event, the Health Professional School Expo, is a place for students to network with admissions representatives from health professional schools from around the country.
