Fall 2014 Open House

We invite you to join us for our annual fall Open House!

This one-day event is designed to provide the prospective student with a basic understanding of the field of public health and the academic public health programs at UNMC. Prospective students will have the opportunity to meet with and have their questions answered by public health leadership, faculty, researchers and current students in the UNMC College of Public Health.  

The Open House is open to any person (prospective students, pre-health advisors, career counselors, etc.) who wants to gain a greater understanding of the field of public health and all the opportunities for education and research in the College of Public Health at the University of Nebraska Medical Center.

This event is intended to educate interested individuals about public health as an exciting career choice for the 21st century. Please plan to join us!

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How do I know if my registration has been received?
    You will receive a confirmation email indicating that your RSVP was received.
  • Will I need to have my ID and/or registration confirmation available to access the event?
    Please stop at the registration table immediately upon arrival and pick up your registration packet and name tag.
  • Should I bring my resume, curriculum vitae, or portfolio to the event?
    Bringing these items is not required, but if you have them available it is recommended. You may meet faculty or staff with whom you want to share more information about yourself. We encourage you to use this opportunity for networking with public health professionals, faculty, and current students.
  • Will the representatives for each department be present and accessible to the participants?
    Yes, department representatives are hosting tables at the lunch, so you will certainly have the opportunity to speak with them at that time.
  • What is the suggested attire?
    We encourage participants to dress comfortably and bring a light sweater or jacket as some areas may be cooler than others. You should also wear comfortable shoes for a moderate amount of walking throughout the building.
  • Will literature about the College and its programs be available?
    Most of the literature you receive will be disseminated at the time of check in. You may also receive additional materials at sessions throughout the day.
  • Any advice to further prepare for the event?
    We encourage you to come prepared with your questions!  Exploring websites such as www.apha.org, www.whatispublichealth.org, www.asph.org  and www.unmc.edu/publichealth will offer you a solid framework for your questions as well as the latest developments in Public Health.
