The Office of Health Professions Advising (HPA) at Princeton University is a unit within the Office of the Dean of the College. HPA supports a diverse student and alumni population preparing for medical, dental, veterinary, public health, and other health professions.
The Assistant Director works in a highly collaborative and supportive team with the HPA Director, Health Professions Adviser, and Administrative Assistant to support approximately 1,200 undergraduates and alumni who are considering health professions careers. Working with some of Princeton’s most motivated undergraduates and alums through individual and group advising, the Assistant Director will guide students in their academic and co-curricular choices; monitor students' progress through the premed/prehealth experience; help students develop their own personal narratives in preparation for their future careers; raise students’ awareness of the diverse opportunities within health professions; and refer students to other resources on campus, as appropriate. When the application season arrives, the Assistant Director interviews applicants and drafts a portion of the University’s composite letters of recommendation.
The Assistant Director is responsible for event programming, supporting several health-related student groups, and coordinating the Health Professions Advising Peer Adviser program and peer leaders in our student-athlete network.
This individual will be expected to collaborate with a broader advising team within the Office of the Dean of the College, including faculty advisers and professional staff in the residential colleges and Programs for Access and inclusion.
The Assistant Director supports the Director in most all functions and leads the office when the Director is absent.
