  • What is a health profession fair?

    A health professions fair is a tabling event that connects students with admissions and recruiting representatives from professional health programs. The representatives promote their schools and programs, and recruit prospective applicants.

  • What are the benefits of attending a health profession fair?

    This is a perfect time for students to ask questions about the requirements, admission, and application process in an informal setting. This opportunity allows you to make informed decisions on which schools and programs will best fit your career outlook. Additional benefits include: 

    • Networking with the people who may be reviewing your applications 
    • Gather information to help build your portfolio as a competitive candidate


  • How to prepare for the fair?

    All participants will be provided with a pen/highlighter and notepad by the Office of Pre-Health Advising & Mentoring. 

    • Be polite when approaching the representatives, introduce your self and make good eye contact. 
    • This is a great time to use the "30-second elevator speech"; tell them about your interests, enthusiasm, and interest in pursuing a career in healthcare. 
    • Thank the representative for taking the time to speak with you, and for any brochures or promotional materials. 
    • Jot down their name and email address provided and send a follow-up email when you have a chance.

  • What are some example questions to ask?

    What does a successful candidate look like at your school? 

    What makes your school unique compared to other programs?

    Why do you think students choose your school? 

    Are there any services or resources available for students (academic, emotional, and social)? 

    What is the current tuition and fees? 

    Are there services/staff that assist students with financial planning and budgeting?
