Health Professions Advising Shows Students More Than One Way to Medicine

April 12th, 2018

 

Your chemistry grades don’t define your future in medicine. Good doctors aren’t made by good science grades alone, says Kate Fukawa-Connelly, director of Princeton’s Health Professions Advising office.

Health Professions Advising (HPA) helps students and alumni as they consider a medical or health care career. Each year, HPA assists more than 100 students and alumni who apply to medical, dental and other professional schools. The office also works with undergraduates throughout their time at Princeton, helping students explore academic and career options starting their first year on campus.

Health Professions Advising (HPA) helps any student considering a medical or health care career. The office works with undergraduates throughout their four years at Princeton and with alumni who apply to medical, dental and other professional schools. HPA is part of the Office of the Dean of the College
