CU Pre-Health Day

September 24, 2016 7:30 am-5:00 PM Please check http://www.cuprehealth.org


​​Join us for an exciting day of exploration and discovery of pre-health careers and opportunities on the CU Anschutz Medical Campus.  We will have a diverse array of information and activities for you to learn more about what happens here on our campus, and the specific offerings required for admissions to our myriad of programs.

Who knows? You might even find something new to spark your health care interests.

Based on what you tell us, when you register, we will group you with others and have programming tailored to your specific interests.  

We anticipate hundreds of undergraduate students, pre-health advisors, and recent graduates will be in attendance.  We want to offer vendors and exhibitors an opportunity to reach this cadre.  We will offer you a small exhibit area, and dedicated time in the schedule for interaction with the attendees.
Please contact Sam Hanson for more information sam.hanson@ucdenver.edu​

Here's the tentative agenda-- please check back as information is finalized.
