Event Overview
TopicBiomedical Science Careers Student Conference
DescriptionThis conference is designed for postdoctoral fellows; medical, dental and graduate students; college and community college students; post-baccalaureates; and high school seniors and juniors. There are two objectives of the Biomedical Science Careers Student Conference. The primary objective is to provide over 1000 African-American, Hispanic/Latino and American Indian/Alaska Native students with an opportunity to network with advisors/role models from the basic and clinical sciences, medicine, public health, academic administration and biotechnology/pharmaceutical industries. These advisors/role models will encourage students to complete advanced studies, and provide concrete advice and information on available resources, professional opportunities and career paths in biomedical science and science-related fields. The second objective is to enable students to meet, inspire and network with one another. Student participants should be seriously interested in or currently studying in biomedical, biotechnology or other science-related fields, such as medicine, chemistry, physics, biology, nursing, dentistry, pharmacy, biomedical engineering, biotechnology, physical therapy, public health, allied health or environmental science. APPLICATIONS WILL BE AVAILABLE IN October 2013 AND CAN BE REQUESTED AT LISE_KAYE@HMS.HARVARD.EDU.
