HPW is 100% online and mostly on-demand. This means that content will drop on specific days for you to read or view on your own time. There are two live components to this year’s event: the social media event on Tuesday, November 17 and the virtual fair on Thursday, November 19.

For Health Professions Organizations

My health profession is not currently on the list. How can we be considered for participation in the HPW events?
The goal of HPW is to expose students to careers in the health professions, so all are welcome. We would need your organization’s official commitment to participate no later than August 1, 2019. This will ensure enough time to prepare for participating in the virtual fair, along with the other events. Please contact to get information about participating.
