Health Professions Fair

The Clarkson University Career Center and the School of Arts and Sciences Health Professions’ Committee are pleased to invite area students to attend our Health Professions Event, held on Wednesday, November 7, 2012.  Medical/Graduate School representatives, professional organizations, and affiliated and practicing professionals will convene to offer information and options to students interested in entering health related careers. 

We offer students, Medical/Graduate Schools, professional organizations and practicing profesionals an opportunity to engage with professionals throughout their visit, as you can see from the day’s schedule below.  Tables in our Student Center will allow all afternoon access to specific professional/graduate school or volunteer opportunities, while the panel sessions encourage a more universal information exchange.
