The healthcare and science field is vast and covers organizations in research and development, technology, insurance, pharmaceuticals and providing care for patients. In addition to companies of all sizes, government, nonprofit and universities are large employers in these fields.
Hands-on, lab-based science courses are an effective way to start developing skills and exploring areas of interest. Coursework that involves conducting experiments, analyzing data and presenting findings is an important foundation to careers in this field. Many Princeton faculty offer students the opportunity to be a research assistant during the year and/or over the summer.
