• Each year, a core of highly motivated Hamilton students can be found taking steps toward a career in healthcare. What are our pre-health students doing this summer? How did they land their internships, and what have they learned? And how does it all fit into what they envision for their futures?

  • Courtney Hance has joined Hamilton as director of health professions advising. Here she talks about her experience and the advantages of a liberal arts education.

  • As an art history major on the pre-med track, Miriam Lerner ’24 believes that college is a time to explore your passions — even if they differ from your career goals. She has taken advantage of the open curriculum and at the same time, her interest in medicine has grown through her biology research at Hamilton. That research led her to a summer internship at the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

  • Pre-health professions tracks are known for their rigorous requirements and demanding workloads that often result in perpetually sleep-deprived students. And although these associations may, to varying degrees, be accurate, the challenges undergraduates face while pursuing a pre-health track are certainly better faced together.

  • The Hamilton community is grateful for the 23 members of Hamilton College Emergency Medical Service (HCEMS). These student volunteers are New York State certified EMTs whose work helps keep the College community safe 24-hours-a-day, seven-days-a-week while classes are in session.
