The Health Sciences Schools have an enrollment of 4,200 students and consist of five professional schools: Medicine, Dental Medicine, Nursing, Social Welfare, and Health Technology and Management (physician assistant, physical therapy, occupational therapy, clinical laboratory sciences, respiratory care, athletic training, health science, and SBNC/non-credit programs). In addition Graduate Programs in Public Health, Nutrition, and Ph.D. programs in Basic Sciences are also offered.
The Health Sciences Office of Student Services (HS OSS) provides student administrative services for the Health Sciences Schools and some services for the Hospital. Areas of office responsibility for students include admissions, financial aid, and general student services including student government and activities. HS OSS provides support for the HS Schools and the Hospital including data reporting, event/room reservations, and maintaining the HS course catalog. HS OSS also collaborates with the Health Sciences Schools in promoting a student life environment conducive to learning and student development.
The level of services the office provides varies by School and academic program. All student services pertain to students enrolled in undergraduate and graduate professional programs, both degree and certificate programs, and non-credit programs. Programs follow the West Campus semester calendar, the Health Sciences modular session calendar, or a combination of both. The length of the academic year can be 9 months or longer (10, 11, or 12 months).
