2015 Graduate & Professional School Fair Overview

The NIH Graduate and Professional School Fair, to be held on Wednesday, July 15, 2015 from 9:00 am to 3:30 pm on the Bethesda campus of the NIH, will provide an opportunity for NIH summer interns (especially those in college) and NIH postbacs, as well as other college students in the DC area, to prepare for the next step in their careers by exploring educational programs leading to the PhD, MD, DDS, MD/PhD, and other graduate and professional degrees. More than 150 outstanding colleges and universities from across the U.S. will be sending representatives of their graduate schools, medical and dental schools, schools of public health, and other biomedically relevant programs to the Fair in the hopes of recruiting NIH trainees.

Student interest is highest in the following schools/programs: medical school, graduate school (PhD programs in all of the biomedical sciences), MD/PhD programs, public health, psychology, dental school, and pharmacy school.

The day will also include workshops on getting to graduate and professional school, MD/PhD programs, interviewing, and careers in public health, psychology, and dentistry. New this year: a diversity discussion series. Exhibits will be open from 10:00 am to 2:15 pm.
