4:30-6:00pm, Wednesday, April 6th

The purpose of the annual High School Science Symposium is to stimulate outstanding high school science students' interest in pursuing careers in biomedical/allied health sciences and medicine by allowing them to meet and learn first-hand about the work of doctors, scientists, and allied health professionals who are finding new treatments and cures for childhood diseases and improving the outcomes for children today. Due to COVID-19, the High School Science Symposium will be held virtually this year. Students can learn about careers in biomedical/allied health sciences and medicine through pre-recorded presentations by professionals working in various healthcare and research careers at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center. On April 6, 2022, students can choose to sign up for one of two concurrent presentations from 4:30 PM – 5:00 PM via Zoom. After that, they will be able to visit breakout rooms where they will meet with up to three different healthcare professionals for informal discussions during which time they will be able to get their specific questions about those careers answered. The ultimate goal of the High School Science Symposium is for participants to obtain a greater interest in pursuing a career in biomedical / allied health sciences and medicine.

All Cincinnati Tri-State Area high school juniors and seniors who are interested in such careers are invited to participate.

Online pre-registration is required. We will have space for 200 students on April 6th, so early registration is strongly encouraged. Registration will close on March 29, 2022. Each student must individually register and choose three careers to discuss.
