For Educators & High School Students

Career Opportunities in the Health Field

Expose your students to the variety of job possibilities and career paths that the health field has to offer. Students interested in art, engineering, music, and many other different areas, all have a place waiting for them in the field of health!

The DFW Area Health Education Center is available as a resource to all Dallas County and Tarrant County school districts. Schools may contact us at any time to request a box of our H.O.T. Jobs Guides, or classroom presentations over health, health professions, and the college application process.
Upon availability, we are also able to schedule hands-on activities and Q&As with medical students.
