Pre-Health Professional Volunteer Program

Penn Medicine Princeton Health's Pre-Health Professional Program will provide opportunities for undergraduate students to explore the health sciences field before making applications to medical school or other professional graduate programs.

Purpose

    The Penn Medicine Princeton Health Pre-Health Professional program is 10 weeks long and begins in early June. There are three components to the program which include: volunteering in a clinical area; weekly lectures; and select observations. Each component is designed to introduce the participating college students to careers in the healthcare profession. Participating students are expected to make a full commitment to all phases of the program which will result in approximately 200 hours of service.
