Your Success is Our Top Priority

I invite you to explore your passion and find a career that you love by gaining an excellent education from the Zuckerberg College of Health Sciences.

If there’s one thing I want you to know about our college, it’s this: your success is what matters most to us.

With a strong support system and outstanding faculty, we do all we can to help you achieve your dream of becoming a health care practitioner. In our Resource Center, you can study, work with tutors and review anatomy models. In our Living-Learning Community, you can live near students majoring in the same program. In our Interprofessional Education program, you’ll learn how to work in teams with students from different disciplines, just like in a real-world health care setting.

All of this translates into a record number of our students successfully graduating, working in their chosen careers or pursuing advance degrees.

The pandemic exposed the critical role that health professionals play to prevent diseases and promote health. It also exposed disparities of health that our faculty and alumni have worked hard to reduce. Read our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion statement.

There’s no better time to work in health sciences fields. Public health professionals and nurses fight the disease front and center. Behind the scenes, medical laboratory science, pharmaceutical sciences, exercise science and nutritional science professionals play a big role to promote health, conduct and develop testing and find new vaccines.

Take the next step to becoming who you were meant to be. Apply Online today!
