Over our 125-year history of educating healthcare professionals, our faith has remained a steadfast light guiding us through challenges and helping us to rise as one to meet the needs of the future. Every choice we’ve made, every academic program offered, every resource obtained has been for the benefit of our students, to meet their needs inside our classrooms and without.
