There is a lot to learn about the CU Anschutz Medical Campus and about the health sciences!  While we aim to be responsive to all requests, our priority is to provide access to career exploration and science exposure activities to students from Aurora Public Schools and other learning institutions, districts and programs serving a high percentage of students from backgrounds underrepresented in the health sciences.  Please browse through our growing campus *menu of career exploration and science exposure offerings.  We are happy to help you find the learning opportunity that is right for you! (*Please note that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, these offerings will be subject to change out of concern for safety for the foreseeable future).

Career Exploration and Science Exposure Opportunities

Our office and other partners on campus offer a variety of career exploration and science exposure opportunities for elementary aged students all the way up to graduate students.  There are also many longer term pathway programs offered through the Office of Educational Outreach and Pathway Initiatives and a complete list of those can be found here.

Activity Requests and Inquiries

Use the forms below to request various activities related to career exploration and science exposure.  Please note that while we will do our best to accommodate your request, we are dependent on the availability of campus partners and content experts to provide these activities and therefore cannot guarantee that your request will be fulfilled.  The more time we have for planning the better, however, we require at least two month's advance notice to try to fulfill your request. All requests for campus visits and career exploration days are for groups of students associated with a school or educational program; we cannot host these activities for individuals due to limited staff bandwidth.  Additionally, due to safety concerns regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, all requests are subject to various restrictions and cancellations at the campus' discretion for the foreseeable future.  

If you are not finding what you need through these forms, please submit a general inquiry here.

Our office is able to offer a limited number of sponsored career exploration days throughout the year for *qualifying schools and programs.  During these visits, students will hear from different academic programs, participate in at least one hands-on activity, and engage with a panel of current CU students and professionals.  Career Exploration Days are scheduled from 10am - 2pm on a mutually agreed upon date.  This activity is most appropriate for high schoolers and we ask that group sizes are capped at 25 students (not including school chaperones).  *Qualifying Schools/Programs: this has been defined as an institution, school, or program serving a majority of students/participants from backgrounds underrepresented in the health sciences (60%+) and/or a majority of students receiving free or reduced lunch (60%+).
