2023 Hybrid Graduate & Professional School Fair

The 2023 NIH Hybrid Graduate & Professional School Fair will be held in-person on Wednesday, July 19 at the Natcher Conference Center and virtually July 24 through Aug. 11. 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 250 colleges and universities from across the U.S. send 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 fair will consist of hybrid workshops on getting to graduate and/or professional school and exhibitor sessions that provide opportunities to learn more about participating educational programs. Exhibitor sessions will be offered both in-person (July 19) and online (July 24-Aug. 11). A list of participating institutions and registration information can be found at
