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 healthcare-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.
