The Department. The B.S. in Health Professions, with an enrollment of over 1,000 students, is joining Athletic Training (M.S.A.T. and D.A.T.), Occupational Therapy (M.O.T and D.O.T.), Physical Therapy (D.P.T.), and Recreational Therapy (B.S. and M.S.), and in a newly formed Department of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences on July 1, 2019. The emerging department with 40 faculty and 1,300 students will produce practitioners and researchers who are prepared and acculturated to improve health and lived experiences. The compelling rationale for realigning the existing disciplines and programs into a single unit is the opportunity to define professional practice and educational endeavors in concert with the College’s public health programs, making the College uniquely grounded in improving the health of individuals, families and populations. Key elements of the department include a vertical integration and balance of programs across undergraduate, professional and doctoral levels; continued advancement of the science, education and practice of individual professions; fostering all faculty and students as leaders in individual disciplines and also as interprofessional educators and practitioners; and establishment of partnerships in education, research and service between clinical and public health practitioners.

The College. Devoted to an interprofessional environment for academic programming and research, the College of Public Health, a CEPH-accredited school of public health, is a constellation of academic units of public health, social work and health profession disciplines, enrolling 4,300 students. The College’s research focuses on social, behavioral, and environmental inquiries, medical/health interventions, and basic science and is sponsored by the National Institutes of Health, National Science Foundation, Department of Defense, and other major funders.  The College has recently launched a new Center focused on Community Engaged Research and Practice.
