  • Regional and national health professional degree programs in the areas of medicine, pharmacy, nursing, public health, vet med, and more.

The primary audience in attendance at this event is UMN undergraduate students, however we welcome undergraduates from metro area colleges and universities. 

The Health Professional School Expo was formerly known as the Health Interprofessional School Fair.

Event Co-Sponsors

Inter-professional pre-health studentsThe Health Professional School Expo is co-sponsored by Interprofessional Pre-Health Students. The Interprofessional Pre-Health Students (IPPHS) group is a student group at the University of Minnesota focused on collaborative healthcare and interprofessional development across pre-health (undergraduate) students. IPPHS is a Campus Life Program in affiliation with the Health Careers Center at the University of Minnesota, who is co-sponsoring the fair along with IPPHS.

Our Fairs

The Health Careers Fair is a place 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.
