FEBRUARY 6, 2024 — UTSA will host its 2024 Health Professions Fair from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Thursday, February 22, in the H-E-B Student Union Ballroom (HSU 1.106) at the UTSA Main Campus. Organized by the UTSA Health Professions Office, the annual event allows students interested in pursuing a career in health care to connect with a wide selection of health profession schools in and outside of Texas. The fair is free and open to all students across San Antonio.
Attendees will be able to explore several dozen medical, dental and nursing schools as well as allied health programs in public health, including pharmacy, veterinary medicine, physician assistant studies, nutrition and dietetics, optometry and physical therapy.
Schools represented include UT Austin, UT Health San Antonio, UT Rio Grande Valley, UT MD Anderson Cancer Center, Baylor College of Medicine, Texas A&M, Texas Tech University, University of North Texas, Johns Hopkins University and Rocky Mountain University. Additionally, representatives from Kaplan and The Princeton Review test preparation companies and the U.S. Army Health Care Recruiting office will attend.
Program admission officers from the various schools will be on hand to visit with students about their programs, including the curriculum, student experience, admission requirements, selection factors, and application process.
“The Health Professions Fair is the ideal place for pre-health students across San Antonio to explore and discover which schools are the best fit with their professional goals and interests,” said Tracy Walton, program manager with the UTSA Health Professions Office.
Walton added that all classifications of students will benefit from attending the fair.
“Freshmen and sophomore attendees will leave the event with information to better determine which schools best fit their professional goals,” she said. “Juniors, seniors, graduate students, and post-baccalaureates will find advice and tips on the application process and the most critical information needed to help them be exceptional candidates when applying to their chosen professional school programs.”
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, health care occupations are projected to grow much faster than the average for all occupations over the next decade, with 1.8 million job openings projected each year. This projected growth is largely due to the country’s aging population and health care worker shortage.
Although UTSA does not offer degrees in any health care specialization, the university offers many degrees that offer the prerequisites needed to give students a strong academic foundation prior to applying to medical, dental, nursing school or other specialized health professions programs. In addition, the UTSA Health Professions Office supports the university’s pre-health students through dedicated advising and career preparation to help students achieve their educational and career goals.
Visitor parking for the 2024 Health Professions Fair will be available in short-term spaces, for a small fee, in the Ximenes Avenue Garage and the Tobin Avenue Garage. Visit the UTSA Campus Services website for more information about visitor parking.
The Health Professions Office is one of seven units within the division of Career-Engaged Learning at UTSA, which engages students in experiential learning opportunities on campus and in the community. The division drives UTSA’s Classroom to Career Initiative by collaborating with partners across the university and San Antonio communities to develop intentional programming and services that build career-ready Roadrunners.
