Our History

Redefining Global Health Leadership

""Since its inception in 2008, the Global Health Program has grown to become one of the most popular programs at Princeton. With a belief that cross-disciplinary thinking can improve real-world policy, we continue to expand.

Preparing Future Leaders

Among our proudest accomplishments is our capacity to help launch global health careers.

  • Roughly 80% of program graduates launch health careers.
  • More than 90% of 2015 graduating seniors cited the impact of summer research on their post-graduation plans.
  • Program graduates can be found: Pursuing domestic and international public health fellowships; providing health care and life sciences consulting; enrolled in graduate school in medicine, public health, epidemiology, clinical neuroscience, and molecular and medical pharmacology.

Engaging Students

GHP EnrollmentOur momentum is growing. Over seven years, our class size has nearly quadrupled. 

Research Support

Each year the Center for Health and Wellbeing provides ~$300K to at least 75 undergraduates for global health research and internships in 20 countries, including the U.S.

Uniting Scholars

GHP Fields of StudyWe continue to make inroads across student majors, because when disciplinary walls come down, new insights emerge.

As part of our educational mission, we also bring together renowned global health researchers from nearly 20 departments to create a vibrant community of scholarship and learning. We also invite important global health scholars to come to campus, adding an international dimension to the classroom experience.

See how we think beyond the discipline.
