Every year we host deans of admission from some of the top medical, dental, public health, pharmacy, nursing, physician assistant, veterinary medicine, optometry, and physical therapy schools across the country, as well as current students from many of these schools. We also have an excellent selection of STEM-focused graduate programs and faculty researchers for those students interested in pursuing research.
We proudly present over 350 dynamic pre-med and pre-health professions workshops — a hallmark of the conference led by deans and admission directors. The speakers and events will provide you with in-depth information on issues ranging from the medical school curriculum, admission requirements, financial aid and test preparation, to public policy and clinical and research opportunities.
Over 150 medical schools, 35 public health schools, 35 pharmacy schools, 35 dental schools, 40 nursing schools, 15 PA schools, 15 Veterinary Schools, 10 Optometry Schools, and 15 physical and occupational therapy programs are scheduled to attend this year. Moreover, more than 400 physicians and representatives from some 700 programs will be present to directly answer questions during workshops and the Health Professions Fair.

Exhibitors at the 2015 Conference
Deans and directors of admission from health professions schools, outreach representatives, non-profit organizations and preparatory programs will all come together from 11am-3pm both days of the Conference to help provide attendees with the information they need to succeed in the health professions.
Representatives from the listed schools will help you plan your pre-health curriculum and, in the end, better prepare you for the admissions process.
This conference is a once-a-year unique opportunity to directly interact with decision-makers of top medical and pre-health professions schools from across the country.
The event has sold out quickly every year. We strongly advise that you register as soon as possible to secure your spot. The All-Inclusive Package especially sells out soon– often three months before the event!
