The 6th Annual UNM Health Professions Symposium will be held Saturday, April 9 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the UNM Student Union Building, giving high school and college students the opportunity to explore everything related to working in the healthcare field.

The one-day event, organized and run by students, is designed to give any high school or college student interested in a career in healthcare the opportunity to access resources that will help them choose a career or perhaps provide answers to questions they encounter on their way.

The symposium will begin at 9 a.m. with welcoming remarks from UNM President Garnett S. Stokes and Executive Vice President Douglas Ziedonis. A special address featuring Dr. Laura Parajon, assistant secretary of the New Mexico Department of Health, follows at 9:15 a.m. Registration for the event begins at 8 a.m.

The remainder of the day includes 90 workshops offered throughout the day covering a range of topics of interest to students considering either health profession. In addition, during the lunch break, there will be an information table where representatives from over 80 programs and organizations will be available to answer questions from students.

Also as part of this year’s event, the UNM Health Professions Symposium will also be offering 18 of our workshops virtually. To watch, simply click on the workshop title for the zoom link. There will be a specific schedule for each of the workshops.
