Health Professions Week (HPW) is an annual, virtual week-long event which allows teachers and students to explore over 20 careers in the health professions. HPW delivers reliable, digital events to attendees which emphasizes career awareness & education. HPW is designed to increase the diversity of young people interested in pursuing a health career. By targeting students who are still deciding on their career path, there is an opportunity to reach a broader and more diverse audience to educate them about the benefits of pursuing a health professions program. The objectives of this session include an overview of the 2020 HPW events, ways to introduce HPW to students in the classroom, and the benefits of participating as a teacher.
This session will also deliver a vision of the future of HPW, as we enter into the 5th year of programming.
