The School of Health Sciences has embarked upon a three phase process of bringing graduate health sciences programs to the Indiana Wesleyan University campus in Marion, IN. We are presently introducing phase I of the health sciences initiative which builds upon the strong undergraduate foundation established by the School of Nursing, the School of Physical and Applied Sciences, and the Health and Human Performance programs. We are building integrated interprofessional education programs that will prepare future-oriented health sciences and health care professionals.
Phase I consists of a Master of Public Health, which enrolled its first cohort of students in the Fall of 2013. Phase II will be to open classes for a postprofessional Master of Science in Athletic Training and an Occupational Therapy Doctorate program. Phase III will see the start of a Doctor of Physical Therapy program. These programs draw heavily on the success of our past while boldly embracing a bright future in the health sciences.
