 What to Expect
The Health Professions Fair is a great way for students to learn about education and careers in health care.  Admissions representatives from over 50 health professions schools in Oregon and across the country will be here on campus to speak with you.  You are welcome to stop by any time while the Fair is open and stay for any length of time.  All majors are welcome at this free event, and no registration is required. 

The event is set up in a table fair format.  When you arrive, stop by the check-in table to receive a list of the schools attending and a map of their table locations.  You are then free to visit the school’s tables to pick up informational materials and speak with admissions representatives.

The Health Professions Fair offers something for everyone:

First and Second Year Students
• Explore health profession school options
• Build networks for the future
• Get tips from school representatives on undergraduate preparation and co-curricular activities

Juniors, Seniors and Alumni
