· 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!

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.

Great opportunities for college graduates are available through The School of Graduate Studies in the Health Sciences at the University of Mississippi Medical Center (UMMC) in Jackson, MS. The UMMC School of Graduate Studies offers a variety of degree programs which prepare students for careers in medical research and teaching. UMMC research programs receive approximately 70 million dollars annually from agencies such as the National Institute of Health. These programs include:
· Biomedical Sciences (Pathology or Biomedical Materials tracks)
· Medical Pharmacology
· Physiology & Biophysics
Our graduate faculty members are committed to providing an outstanding learning and research experience in areas such as cancer, heart diseases, neurological diseases, obesity, diabetes and infectious diseases. Moreover, the low faculty to student ratio ensures that students receive the mentoring they require for success in graduate school.
We are looking to recruit students, like yours, with undergraduate degrees in Sciences. All students who are accepted to our Ph.D. programs receive a highly competitive financial package from UMMC worth more than $140,000 over the typical five years of training. This package includes a full tuition scholarship, a living allowance of approximately $24,150 per year, and medical insurance. The purpose of this support is to allow our students to focus entirely on their studies and research. As a result, our students have enjoyed great success in finding positions after completing their graduate degrees.
If you have students who are interested in pursuing a career in biomedical research, please let them know about our programs. For those who would like more information or to visit our campus, please contact Shanna Moulds by email (firstname.lastname@example.org ) or by phone 601-984-1632. You may also wish to visit our website: www.umc.edu/graduateschool for information about a specific program. The application deadline for our programs is December 15, 2017. This deadline provides sufficient time for us to plan our recruiting weekend that will take place in February 2018.
We look forward to assisting graduates of Christian Brothers University in the next phase of their educational training. Thank you for your time and consideration.
