Regis College, Tufts, BU, University of New England & MGH Institute of Health Professions to Showcase Quality of Graduate Education in Health

September 26, 2013

The health care and social assistance industry is expected to generate the 5.6 million jobs, at an annual rate of 3.0 percent between 2010 and 2020, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. That’s the most dramatic growth of any sector in the country. The demand for a graduate- and professionally educated workforce to fill those jobs will increase to meet that growth. Professionals need to be educated now to be prepared and in position to succeed in the near future.

Reflective of that demand, Regis College Office of Graduate & Professional Programs will host its first “30 in 30” breakfast and lecture on October 3 to discuss graduate health professions education. Regis will be joined by Tufts University School of Medicine, Boston University, Massachusetts General Hospital Institute of Health Professions and the University of New England, presenting information on 30 graduate programs. These include Doctor of Dental Medicine, Nuclear Medicine Technology, and Public Health/Biomedical Sciences. Representatives from each school will be available to answer questions about their respective graduate programs in health professions and science.

“Regis is hosting this event with other top schools in the Boston area to showcase the high quality health professions and health sciences programs available to graduate students in the Greater Boston area,” said Dr. Claudia Pouravelis, Associate Dean of Graduate Affairs at Regis College. “We all seek to keep up with a growing market demand for health care professionals,” she added.

The target audience is university and college administrators and advisors and professional career counselors across southern New England. The event will take place on Thursday, October 3 at 8:00am at Regis College and requires pre-registration. For more information or to register, please contact Dr. Claudia Pouravelis, Associate Dean, Graduate Affairs at 781-768-7330 or email graduatedepartment@regiscollege.edu.
