Could you ever see yourself in ER scrubs? Maybe it’s time you found out

what it takes.

Western University of Health Sciences will shed light on health care

careers and education in a two-day conference the weekend of November 3-4.

On the first day of the conference, Western University’s students, faculty

and staff will give an overview on careers in the institution’s physical

therapy, pharmacy, osteopathic medicine, physician assistant and

veterinary medicine programs. Attendees will tour the campus and sit in

on a panel in which students from all of the university’s programs will

field questions regarding their career paths.

The second day of the conference will focus on learning methods and test

taking skills through a variety of workshops that cater to health

professions students. Participants also will take a diagnostic test that

pinpoints their academic strengths and weaknesses. At the conclusion of

the event, attendees will be given resources at the university with which

they can follow up on their educational opportunities in health care.

“”In pursuing an education in the health professions, the most important

thing to understand is the steps students need to take to achieve their

academic and professional goals,”” said university recruiter and event

coordinator Marie Anderson. “”This conference enables students to learn

about those steps from the people who teach, study and practice in the

professions.””

Anderson said there has been a major effort to attract the

underrepresented communities to this conference to meet increasing

industry demands.

The cost is $20 per person and lunch is included. Interested parties
