UCSF High School Outreach Conference

The High School Outreach Conference is an event that seeks to expose high school students in the bay area to the different careers available to them in healthcare. Students  spend the day rotating between each of the 6 professional schools at UCSF (medicine, dentistry, nursing, pharmacy, physical therapy, and graduate studies) and participate in hands-on demonstrations with each school. They get to talk to real students, get their hands dirty, and play doctor for a day, and it’s a really wonderful event!

This year it’s on Saturday April 26th, 2014, from 8:30am-4pm, and it’s completely free! Students are given a free t-shirt, breakfast and lunch, as well as a folder with a program and all sorts of information about each of the schools. There are raffles and prizes, and a whole lot of fun – last year we brought ~300 high schoolers to the event!

Students can register at http://tinyurl.com/2014HSOC and they must have a signed parent permission slip. They can either mail it to Valentina Zahran 1418 9th Ave. San Francisco, CA 94122 or bring it with them on the day of the event.
