·         November 6-10:  Second Annual Health Professions Week, an interprofessional virtual recruitment event. 

 

We are pleased to announce the second annual Health Professions Week (#HPW2017), taking place from November 6-10, 2017. We’re excited to engage young people in learning more about health professions careers —and we’re inviting YOU to participate as well!

Health Professions Week is a first-of-its-kind interprofessional virtual recruitment event that boasts an exciting week-long series of activities—mostly online—for high school and college students interested in learning more about careers in the health professions. It’s completely free for students, counselors, parents and advisors.

#HPW2017 is intended to increase awareness of the 20 participating health professions and is inspired by a vision that collaborative practice is key to safe, high quality, accessible, patient-centered care. During the inaugural 2016 event, over 4,000 students from across the U.S. joined in the virtual fairs, online treasure hunts, interview days and community connect days. This year, we anticipate a 50% increase in attendance!

Please take a moment to forward this message to your student network. Registration is free and required to participate in some of the week’s events.

We look forward to working with you to strengthen the health professions pipeline!

Best,

Health Professions Week Team

Why consider a career in podiatric medicine?

·         A Doctor of Podiatric Medicine (DPM) is a specialist in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of lower extremity disorders, diseases and injuries.

·         DPMs can specialize in a variety of areas such as surgery, orthopedics, or public health. Besides these certified specialties, podiatrists may practice a subspecialty such as sports medicine, pediatrics, dermatology, radiology, geriatrics, or diabetic foot care.

·         The DPM is a vital member of the health-care team. He or she is often the first to detect symptoms of diabetes or peripheral vascular disease because of the human foot’s interrelation with the rest of the body.
