UNM Health Sciences Center hosts annual job fair Sept. 8

Event focuses on keeping health care providers in NM

The UNM Health Sciences Center (HSC) annual Job Fair is slated for Thursday, Sept. 8, 9 a.m.- 1 p.m. on the HSC North Campus Upper Plaza.

The job fair is open to all physicians, nurse practitioners, midwives, nurses, physician assistants, social workers, pharmacists, nutritionists, dieticians, occupational therapists, physical therapists, dentists, dental hygienists, medical lab and radiology technicians, public health, speech language pathologists and EMS professionals, as well as health profession students from any New Mexico educational institution.

“At a time of health care provider shortages in New Mexico, we want to continue to provide a forum for medical residents and health sciences students to seek employment in our state after they graduate,” says Amy Clithero, senior program manager for the UNM School of Medicine’s (SOM) Department of Family and Community Medicine. “The HSC Job Fair gives them a chance to visit with New Mexico employers and learn about their organizations and the communities they serve.”

Hosted by the SOM’s Resident and Graduate Assisted Placement Services, last year’s fair drew nearly 50 health care employers in the state, along with three national employers, and more than 150 attendees. For more information, contact Amy Clithero at AClithero@salud.unm.edu.
