Healthcare & STEM Careers Forum

The WITS life science career forum will have key speakers and attendees from leading companies in Diagnostics, Industry, Pharma, Business and Healthcare. There will be talks on better understanding types of roles available to life science graduates and advice on how to move within the life science field.
