Spring 2017 Fieldwork Expo

Are you planning to enroll in 166A Fieldwork Seminar and 166B Fieldwork Practicum next semester, Fall 2017? 

Do you need to find an internship site for the fall? 

If so, please plan to attend the Fieldwork Expo

Date: Fri, May 12, 2017
Time: 10:00 am – 11:30 am 
Location: SJSU, Building YUH Room 243

Why should you attend the Expo? 
This is your gateway to a successful internship. It has been shown that students who participate in the expo begin their fieldwork hours earlier, and have a higher success rate of completing their 200 hours.

The Fieldwork Expo is a chance for students to: 

  • Meet preceptors from many of our internship sites and learn about internship opportunities.
  • Begin the application process before next semester Fall 2017.
  • Dialogue with outgoing student interns about their internship experiences and gain valuable advice.
  • Bring your résumé and your 30-second elevator speech on your interests, strengths, and skills.
  • Network with health professionals in the field and health science students.
