Purpose and Focus

The School of Integrated Health Sciences (SIHS) primary mission is to provide quality education and service-learning, conduct basic, translational and clinical research, and integrate excellence in teaching, research and service to improve health care in the communities that we serve.

Integrated Health Sciences offers nearly 20 undergraduate and graduate degree programs, two minors, a certificate program, and a post-baccalaureate internship.

Students interested in medical physics, nuclear medicine, comprehensive medical imaging, radiochemistry, and radiography should contact the Health Physics and Diagnostic Sciences department. Those interested in athletic training should contact the Kinesiology and Nutrition Sciences department.

Students have opportunities to participate in and lead research studies with access to many on-campus laboratories and guidance by experienced faculty members. Since some programs can be entered on a competitive basis only, students should contact the respective program director for additional admissions details.

The School of Integrated Health Sciences continues to make a positive impact and fosters evolutionary changes in health care on local and national levels. The demand for exceptional care and for caring, knowledgeable professions is at an all-time high. The school meets that demand by graduating students who are expertly trained and prepared to not only continue the delivery of top-notch health care but also advance innovation, research, and enhanced delivery methods throughout the industry.
