Our programs prepare women and men to meet future health care challenges. Here, class sizes are deliberately kept small and taught by highly skilled and experienced professors.

We give graduates a great head start at the local and international level by providing practical, hands-on learning experiences through our practicum placements with hospitals and clinics, non-profit organizations, and industry.
