Don’t Miss Health Professions Week 2022—November 5-11

Now in its seventh year, Health Professions Week 2022 (HPW2022) is a free online career-exploration event.

The mission of Health Professions Week, or HPW, is to assist students who are interested in the health professions but still unsure of their chosen specialty and/or how to best forge a path to success. HPW caters to high school and postsecondary students both domestically and abroad and welcomes educators and family members to also participate and learn. 

Not sure how to research a profession of interest that is new to you? HPW can help. 

Not sure which major to choose, or which one might be the best fit for you? HPW can help you with that, too.
