School by the Numbers

98% Success Rate

Percentage of our 2020 graduates who are either employed or furthering their education within 6 months of graduation.

+15% Job Growth

Projected job growth of health care occupations through 2029. (U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, 2020)

100% Pass Rate

6 of our programs with licensure exams reported a perfect first-time pass rate in 2020, and many of our programs scored above national average pass rates.

Examine infinite possibilities

All of our programs favor an interprofessional, patient-centered approach taught by experienced faculty in highly collaborative settings. In fact, we are one of only a few universities in the nation to have a school of health sciences along with a medical school and nursing school on one campus. This means you’ll experience what being part of an integrated team is all about as you work alongside students from other health care-based programs, and with some of the most technologically advanced resources in academia.

From fieldwork and internships to our on-campus clinics and global engagement programs, you’ll have every opportunity to put into practice what you learn — and make a positive difference while you do it. When you graduate, you’ll do so with the experience, confidence and broad spectrum of interdisciplinary skills needed to become a leader in both your discipline and the global community.
