As a sophomore, you have a better sense of campus, your learning style and how to succeed academically, and your interests outside of the classroom. Now is a time to start moving into leadership roles in activities and being more specific in your academic path. Here are some resources to use to help you reach these goals.
- Preparing for a Career in the Health Professions, Class of 2019 (pdf) - recommended reading for all students in the first semester. This will take you through the basics of academic and non-academic preparation as a pre-health student.
- HPA Peer Advisers & Jock Docs – for a peer perspective, all of these students have volunteered to talk with current students about their plans. You can contact any HPA Peer Adviser in any residential college.
- Majors and Pre-Health
- Early Assurance Programs – there are two medical school programs open to all Princeton sophomores, where you apply as a sophomore and, if accepted, bypass the regular admissions process:
- Summer clinical opportunities, research internships, and international opportunities.
- Study Abroad and the Pre-health Student (pdf) & Suggested Study Abroad Locations (pdf)
And if you haven't yet:
- Like HPA on Facebook – we share news, pictures, events reminders, and other useful information via our Facebook page. Like us to stay in the loop!
- Join the HPA Listserv – You will be automatically added to our listserv if you indicated an interest in health professions when you provided academic information as an incoming student, or when you come to a meeting with HPA advisers. We send out Vitals, our weekly e-newsletters, and a few other announcements via our listserv. Contact us if you’d like to be added to our listserv.
