UC Davis has been home to the nation's largest pre-health conference for over a decade. The 15th Annual UC Davis Pre-Health Conference will take place on Saturday, October 14, 2017 on the UC Davis campus. 

Redefine boundaries. Expand perspectives. Explore your purpose.

The 2017 UC Davis Pre-Health Conference theme builds upon the interprofessionalism emphasized during the 2016 conference and invites attendees, speakers, and exhibitors to imagine the role the next generation of professionals will have in health care.

This year's conference will host 4,500 pre-health students with varying health career interests, majors, and backgrounds from across the state of California. The conference hosts keynote speakers, deans panels, pre-health fair, and hands-on workshops covering a variety of topics from admissions to suturing. Attendees have the opportunity to explore a variety of health professions, including allopathic, osteopathic, podiatric, and naturopathic medicine, veterinary medicine, pharmacy, dentistry, nursing, optometry, physical and occupational therapy, physicians assistant, and more.

The Pre-Health Conference is planned, coordinated, and executed by a team of UC Davis undergraduates. Without their dedication, this conference would not be possible.
