Welcome to the College of Health Sciences!

David C. Shelledy, Dean, College of Health SciencesThe College of Health Sciences offers outstanding educational programs for the preparation of allied health and health care management professionals. There are over 200 different allied health fields and allied health workers constitute nearly 60 percent of the health care workforce in the United States. Because of advances in treatment and technology, population growth and the aging of the population, the demand for allied health professionals is expected to increase significantly. Allied health professionals and managers work in many different health care settings including acute care, chronic care, primary care, community-based care, clinics, physician’s offices, educational institutions, research facilities and in industry. Patients served range from newborn infants and pediatric patients to adults and the elderly.

In keeping with the Rush University practitioner-teacher model, the College of Health Sciences integrates patient care, research, scholarship and service into the teaching-learning process for our students. We strive to provide educational programs that are among the very best in preparing graduates to provide accessible, high quality care for our patients and community.
