Chat with talented potential graduate students interested in a variety of health professions. This virtual event will allow institutions to connect with students through an online platform of your choice.
Chat session details
By registering to participate in the Midwest Health Professions Expo, you will have the opportunity to set up a live chat session using the online platform of your choice (e.g. Zoom, WebEx, GoToMeeting, etc.) as well as select the time(s) of your chat session on March 1st. View your chat session as the same opportunity you have to speak with students as if they approached your table at an on-site fair.
When you register, please submit the chat session link as well as a call-in number.* Please include the time(s) students will be able to speak with your institution’s representatives. The link and times of the chat will be available prior to Monday, March 1st on the event website so that attendees can plan ahead.
In order to provide students a balance of program types we may need to place some institutions on a wait list.
*Please keep in mind that not all students have access to video capabilities. Including a call-in number will allow these students to join the chat session.
Managing chat sessions
Some suggestions for managing your chat sessions:
- Keep in mind this is a chat session, it is not time to give a formal presentation about your institution.
- Organize a panel or Q&A session so students can drop-in to ask about the opportunities available at your institution.
- Have one representative designated to moderate the chat session by speaking with students and another to manage the chat box.
- Have a list of talking points to address should there be a lull in questions.
