Date Friday, July 10, 2020
Recruiter Registration opens Spring 2020
UNC School of Medicine Office of Scholastic Enrichment & Equity is excited to once again co-host the annual Larry D. Keith Health Professions Recruitment Fair. The 2020 Fair will be held on the campus of Duke University School of Medicine. Date and registration information will be provided early 2020.
The 2020 Larry D. Keith Area Health Professions Recruitment Fair will be sponsored by the University of North Carolina Schools of Medicine and Dentistry and Duke University School of Medicine. The local hosts will also include the NC AHEC Programs and Carolina Higher Education Opportunity Programs (CHEOP). Students and advisers will be invited from various institutions. Based on past seminars, the audience will represent 15-20 states and 40-50 health professional colleges and universities.
The purpose of the recruitment fair is to enable a group of summer program participants to expand their horizons on the health professional school opportunities available to them, to enrich their understanding of the pre-professional planning process, and to meet personally with important professional school representatives. Approximately 300 minority and/or disadvantaged students — mostly college juniors, seniors, and post-graduates — will attend. These students attending the fair will come from the following summer programs:
- UNC Schools of Medicine and Dentistry’s Medical Education Development (MED) Program
- UNC Chapel Hill Science Enrichment Program (SEP)
- Duke University Summer Biomedical Sciences Institute (formerly known as Summer Medical and Dental Education Program (SMDEP))
- Other students from surrounding NC schools and summer programs
