Healthcare and Science

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. 

Gaining experience

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.

Professional organizations and associations

Professional organizations and associations are membership-based groups comprised of people working in a similar field. They can be helpful resources for students to learn more about a field, develop connections and discover related opportunities. You can search for related organizations and associations using a database provided by the Princeton University Library.
