Rare New England is hosting four online Genetics Career Fairs during the fall of 2020 and the spring of 2021. The fall events will be on November 10 and December 10, 6:30-7:30 pm ET.

The goal of these career fairs is to attract and inspire young professionals – medical students, pediatric and medicine interns and residents, undergraduate/graduate genetics students – to consider a career in genetics, a very promising and expanding area of medicine but one with a serious workforce shortage. This shortage is compromising the promising benefits that can come from all the research and clinical effort underway in this country and around the world.

Attendees of the career fairs will have an opportunity to hear from three different types of geneticists – a clinical (or general) geneticist, a biochemical (or metabolic) geneticist, and a research/laboratory/industry geneticist. Speakers typically describe “a day in the life of a geneticist.” They talk about interesting cases and share their passion for patient care and/or contributing to science and the development of new therapies.
