Over the next 10 years, Ohio and the nation will increasingly depend on a well-prepared workforce in health professions. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that occupations related to health professions will add more new jobs than any other economic sector. Of the 30 occupations projected to have the largest percentage increase, 14 are related to health professions. Those professions typically require advanced education and training.
The nature of these health careers is also changing. Demands of our evolving health systems will require greater competency in collaborative care. Graduates of health sciences programs need to learn in an interprofessional environment.
At Ohio State, a health sciences education includes exposure to technological advances, a personalized approach to care combined with a population approach to community health, and training based on scientific evidence.
No other U.S. university offers students all seven health sciences disciplines on one campus. This breadth and depth means greater opportunities to customize your education. Our alumni network of more than 65,000 health sciences Buckeyes supports new graduates, resulting in high placement rates following graduation.
