Global Health Program Shapes Students in the Classroom and in the Field
Princeton's Global Health Program (GHP) serves as a hub for students interested in tackling some of the most pressing health-related issues of our time.
Students can earn a certificate in global health and health policy and also pursue a wide range of opportunities, such as participating in a summer internship in the United States or abroad, taking health-related courses, finding support for health-related thesis research, and getting involved with on-campus activities related to global health. Students often decide to pursue a career in global health.
"Princeton students are part of a new global health generation — a generation that witnesses firsthand the severe health inequalities in the world and wants to do something about it," said João Biehl and Andrea Graham, co-directors of GHP, who introduce the program in the publication "Global Health at Princeton," which highlights GHP's offerings. "The Global Health Program equips students with the cutting-edge tools, real-life experiences and critical perspective to make meaningful change in a time plagued by both emerging and enduring health-related challenges."
