It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Indiana Wesleyan University School of Health Sciences. Our school is home to a Master of Public Health, a post professional Master of Science in Athletic Training, an Occupational Therapy Doctorate, and a soon to be, Doctorate in Physical Therapy. The job growth outlook for these professions are among the fastest growing in the country. The Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that there will be more than 100,000 job openings across these professions within the next 10 years. Indiana Wesleyan University has responded to this demand by establishing the School of Health Sciences and has housed these programs in the newly constructed and fully equipped $48M Ott Hall of Sciences and Nursing building. This building provides state-of-the-art classrooms and laboratories that supports discipline specific as well as inter-professional learning experiences.
Indiana Wesleyan University is committed to improving the health and quality of life of humanity by providing Christ-centered faculty who are committed to delivering high quality learning opportunities for students and health care professionals. Our faculty are devoted to advancing knowledge through scholarship, research, and evidence-based practice. As such, we are committed to educating our students to serve the community with competent and compassionate patient care and with servant leadership.
This is an exciting time for the health sciences and I am delighted to share with you what we can offer to advance the state of knowledge to prepare, transform, and equip our students of many ages and diverse backgrounds who are committed to serve others. I encourage you to explore what our School of Health Sciences at Indiana Wesleyan University has to offer.
