New Facilities

Construction began in April 2012 for a $42.8 million project that would more than double the space available to nursing and new graduate health sciences programs. The largest component of the project will be a five-story, 111,250-square-foot building that would connect to the current Burns Hall of Science and Nursing by a three-story atrium. This new facility will house the graduate programs in athletic training, occupational therapy, physical therapy, and public health.

New Programs

Master of Public Health Fall 2013
Post-professional Master of Science in Athletic Training Summer 2014
Occupational Therapy Doctorate Fall 2015
Doctor of Physical Therapy 2016

Through research, education, evidence-based practice and compassionate patient care, the IWU School of Health Sciences seeks to promote a greater health environment locally, nationally and internationally. We aim to decrease health disparities in rural and global populations and improve the health of the community through collaborations with area hospitals and health centers.
