Health Professions, Public Health, & Life Sciences

Welcome to Career Education’s Health Professions, Public Health, and Life Sciences Career Community page. Wellesley students and alumnae drawn to this Career Community come from a variety of personal and academic backgrounds. Members of this community have a wide range of career interests that include caring for those who are ill, safety and health concerns of general populations, and the use of knowledge of science to make the world a better place. 

As you read our website and meet with our advisors, you’ll learn how to:
• EXPLORE various careers through courses, experiences, and networking
• PREPARE for jobs, volunteer experiences, or graduate coursework
• APPLY to programs, jobs, and schools that will move you along your path

This page includes resources, stories, and events across all three areas of our Career Community: Health Professions, Public Health, and Life Sciences. You can also visit our subpages on Health Professions or Public Health & Life Sciences for content further tailored to these areas.

We encourage you to meet with our health professions advisors to get support and resources as you continue on your career path. We look forward to working with you!
