Jessie Pilewski

Greetings! If you are interested in, or considering, a career in healthcare or medicine, I am here to help you! We have many opportunities available for students to learn about health careers, including: the Health Externship Program, the Community Medicine Program, summer research and internships, the Intercultural Competence May Term, and EPIC Global Health opportunities in places like the Dominican Republic and Peru. In addition to working with students to help them identify potential careers and opportunities, I also advise the Health Club, MAPS, and HOSA.

You can  find me in the classroom teaching a LIFT course for our first generation students during the 2nd semester. I also supervise the Pre-Health Peer Mentors, who are all wonderful and happy to meet with you! When I am not in the office, you can find me hanging with my furry child (Earl). Chances are if you have met a fluffy, high-energy, light-colored puppy taking his student friends for walks around campus . . . it’s Earl.
