Health Professions Grad School Fair


Erica Graff

It is not very often that I get to go shopping. My schedule fills up, and then I can’t borrow a car, and then I remember that I spent all of my birthday money already. Today was my lucky day! The Health Professions Advisory Office hosted a grad school fair. There were 17 medical schools there, as well as a ton of dental, master’s, physical therapy and other medical related professional schools in attendance.

I got to walk around and schmooze with admissions representatives from schools all over the country. There was free pizza and soda, and all of the schools were giving out fun treats. I snagged a toothbrush and some pens, but I passed on the hand sanitizer, stress balls and glue sticks (the last of which I had a little trouble relating to medicine).

I was most excited because there were actual two schools from my home state (the great and sunny Florida) represented. Both the University of Florida School of Medicine and the Miller School of Medicine School of Public Health (at the University of Miami) sent representatives. I loved getting to talk to these people in particular because they helped me understand the opportunities available to me as a resident. I also learned a ton about the MD/MPH program at the University of Miami, which I had not really previously considered. Granted, UM only sent a representative of the school of Public Health, but after meeting the reps, I could easily be convinced into applying to the MD/MPH program.

I walked out of the grad school fair feeling like I was on cloud nine. I am so grateful that Vanderbilt put this together and that I had the opportunity to learn about such great schools. I guess all I have to do now is apply. Wish me luck!

The HPAO is conveniently located in the Student Life Center
