Any and all students and professionals interested in pursuing graduate education or professional school (such as medical, optometry, dentistry or nursing programs) should attend the Graduate Program Recruitment Fair. It is an opportunity to explore your options and determine which UAB program can help you achieve your academic and career goals. It is never too early to start planning; if you're a sophomore or beyond, start now. This is the perfect way to dip your toes into the world of graduate education.
