Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center (TTUHSC) will host the annual Future Healthcare Professionals’ Experience (FHPE) from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. March 30 at the Academic Classroom Building, 3601 Fourth St.

TTUHSC schools have worked collaboratively to provide the West Texas community insight into health care fields. High school students, college students and current professionals interested in entering a new career are encouraged to attend. 

Brooke Walterscheid, TTUHSC Student Government Association president and FHPE committee member, said this event will give individuals interested in pursuing health care related professions insight to all fields.

“This experience will feature informative sessions from all disciplines and is aimed at anyone interested in a health care career including non-traditional students looking at going back to school for another degree,” Walterscheid said.

All five schools, the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, School of Medicine, School of Health Professions, School of Pharmacy and School of Nursing will have faculty, students and staff present to discuss and demonstrate what a career in each of their respective programs entails.

Walterscheid said students see the steps it takes to get into these careers with offered programs.

“Students will also participate in anatomy demonstrations from our anatomy lab, tours of the F. Marie Hall SimLife Center and also get an overview on financial aid and a breakdown of the costs to attend an academic health institution and advice for applying to and attending an academic health institution,” Walterscheid said.

The event is free and lunch will be provided. Persons interested in attending FHPE can register the day of the event or online at http://www.ttuhsc.edu/studentservices/futurehealthcareexperience.aspx. For more information, call Doris Hereford, TTUHSC Student Services, at (806) 743-2300.
