For Employers & Graduate/Professional Program Recruiters
Each semester the SHP Office of Career Services hosts a Career & Opportunities Fair for University of Missouri students. We invite a variety of recruiters searching for graduate students, employees, interns, and/or volunteers. The School of Health Professions houses over a number of different degree programs, including the Health Science degree. The Health Science degree is the fastest growing program at the University of Missouri, which offers a strong health foundation for students to explore interests such as public health, health administration, clinical professions, health education, and more.

Graduate and professional online degree programs include the Master of Science (MS), RN to MS Nurse Educator (online), MS in Care Management, and MS(N) as Nurse Educator or Leadership in Nursing and Healthcare Systems.

The online Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) program, which also offers an international residential PhD option, is available for both nurses and non-nurses who seek a program which will prepare them as scholars, educators, and researchers in healthcare.
Please note: The MS in Care Management program will see its first graduating class in fall 2021.

*With the increase in costs associated with the new career fair venue and coordinating services, we can no longer offer free registration to our partners recruiting volunteers. Organizations that qualify for the volunteer recruitment fee are those who are not recruiting students for employment or graduate/professional programs. We have also added a $100 fee for organizations interested in bringing more than 2 recruiters, however, this will allow recruiters to have an additional booth if interested.
