Graduate & Professional School Fair Scheduled
The NIH Graduate & Professional School Fair will be held on Thursday, July 14 from 8:45 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at Natcher Conference Center.
The fair provides an opportunity for NIH summer interns (especially those in college) and postbacs, as well as other college students in the D.C. area, to prepare for the next step in their careers by exploring educational programs leading to the Ph.D., M.D., D.D.S., M.D./Ph.D. and other graduate and professional degrees.
More than 150 outstanding colleges and universities from across the U.S. will send representatives from graduate schools, medical and dental schools, schools of public health and other biomedically relevant programs to the fair in hopes of recruiting NIH trainees.
The day will also include workshops on getting to graduate and professional school, M.D./Ph.D. programs, interviewing, careers in public health, computational biology/bioinformatics, psychology and dentistry. Exhibits will be open from 9:45 a.m. to 2:15 p.m.
