Health Careers Fair

Health Careers Fair 2017


The Health Careers ​F​air ​(HCF) at the University of Minnesota ​is open to all pre-health students, who might be at various points in their journey.​

The HCF is 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. The primary audience is UMN undergraduate students, but is open to the public and has had high school students or other university students from the metro area attend. 

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.

Our Fairs

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.

The Health Professional School Expo (formerly the Health Interprofessional School Fair) is a place for students to network with health professional schools from around the country. Underclassmen can learn about what different programs and schools have to offer, to help guide them in what prerequisites and experiences they need for their application portfolio. Upperclassmen can network with admissions representatives from their top school choices as they approach the point of application.
