• Health Careers Fair 2017

    We're gearing up for the annual Health Careers Fair, which will take place on Thursday, October 5th from 10am - 2pm in the Great Hall in Coffman Memorial Union. The Health Careers Fair is a great 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. Mark your calendars for this once-a-year event!

  • We have a new name!

    The Health Careers Center has changed our name to the Pre-Health Student Resource Center. This new name helps clarify our work - what we do, and who we serve.

    The Pre-Health Student Resource Center works with pre-health students (students who are not yet enrolled in a health degree program) to support them as they explore, prepare, and apply for a health degree program.
