11th NIH Graduate & Professional School Fair

The 2018 NIH Graduate & Professional School Fair will be held on Wednesday, July 18 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 200 colleges and universities from across the U.S. are sending representatives of their graduate schools, medical and dental schools, schools of public health and other biomedically relevant programs 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; and careers in public health, computational biology/bioinformatics, psychology and dentistry. Exhibits will be open from 9:45 a.m. to 2:15 p.m.
