HSC and APS Black Student Unions sponsoring healthcare career fair

The Albuquerque Public School (APS) Black Student Unions are partnering with the University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center to host a healthcare career fair for high school students. The event will run from 8 a.m.-noon on Friday, March 14.

High school students considering healthcare careers will have the opportunity to learn new skills and practice interviewing techniques, while professionals from across the UNM Health Sciences Center will be available to provide information and answer questions. Students will even be able to visualize their future in medicine, by trying on scrubs and medical coats and posing for photos.  

“It is a great opportunity for students to learn more about the careers healthcare can offer them,” said Natalie Robinson Bruner, program specialist for the UNM Physician Assistant Program and coordinator for the day’s activities.  “This is only our second year coordinating this event.  We’ve worked hard to have a number of activities for students to participate in rather than just walking through, picking up information.”

Students will be able to question experts in a number of health care professions including:


Medical Lab Sciences


Emergency Medicine


Dental Hygiene

Physical Therapy

Social Work

Biomedical Research

Healthcare Administration

Physician Assistant

Occupational Therapy

Radiologic Sciences

Public Health

Lunch will be provided and students will have the chance to win prizes.

To participate in these events, students can contact a high school BSU sponsor or email jackson_joy@aps.edu at Albuquerque Public Schools or nbruner@salud.unm.edu at UNM.
