Academics

Core to the mission of Western University of Health Sciences is the rigor and relevance of our academic programs. We are nine colleges with one goal- providing a pipeline of health care experts to the communities that need them. The evolution of knowledge, skills and competencies mandates dynamic curricula that is steeped in both time-tested tradition and emerging innovation. Each College is led by a dean who represents their profession nationally and informs the credentialling of their future generations. As one of the most comprehensive health science universities in the country, our students benefit greatly from the wide scope of interprofessional cultures and courses that inform the unique identity of our two campuses.
