What's Up Doc?

The 5 W’s of the 2015 Health Professions School Recruitment Fair

health professional fair heroYou’ve seen a lot of chatter about the Health Professions School Fair (REGISTER by April 1st!) and you may be wondering why it’s such a big deal. So here’s the who, what, when, where, and why:

WHO: This fair is for you! And when we say “you” we mean it! It can be helpful for a freshman who is just exploring, a sophomore anticipating the application process, or an upper-classman, grad student or alumni currently in the application process. In fact, the wider DC community is welcome. There is something for everyone.

WHAT: About 80 health profession programs come to GW for three hours to be available to you! Programs will have a table with 1 or 2 reps, and you can talk to them about their program, what it offers, what they are looking for from applicants, etc. We will also have a few breakout sessions after the fair, and priority will go to those who have pre-registered. You also get a nice little name tag if you register in advance.

WHEN: Wednesday, April 8th from 4pm to 7pm, with breakout sessions from 7pm to 8pm. You may want to only visit with one or two programs and be there for 15 minutes. That is totally fine. You may want to talk to a dozen different reps and spend a few hours on the floor. That is fine as well. Whatever works for your schedule that day.

WHERE: Here! On campus! At the Smith Center!

WHY: It’s a great opportunity for you to practice talking to schools and presenting yourself professionally, something you’ll be doing throughout the application process down the road. It is also an opportunity to learn more about a program without having to visit. And we all know that you can often learn a lot more from a person than from a website.
