UNMC Annual Health Care Career Days

Annual UNMC Health Care Career Day 2014

This spring, UNMC Recruitment and Student Engagement will host a Health Care Career Day to interested juniors (Family and Consumer Sciences/Chemistry/AP biology/chemistry classes, career counselors, etc.) in the Omaha area for the opportunity to learn about health education/research programs offered at UNMC.  On this day, students will learn more about preparing for specific health career programs after selecting three areas of interest.
