The College of Health Sciences is the newest college at The University of Tulsa. It is the new home for many well-established health-related undergraduate and graduate programs formerly offered by the Collins College of Business and the College of Arts and Sciences, and will be the home for several new academic programs which are now in the planning process. A combination of idiactic coursework and clinical experiences in a wide variety of settings prepares graduates to take their place within the healthcare system in tulsa and throughout the United States. Through unique opportunities for interdisciplinary interactions, students will learn the business, legal, and cultural aspects of healthcare. Additional opportunities for students include involvement in faculty research through the TURC program and experiential learning in the local community and around the world.
The College of Health Sciences will play a leadership role in improving health at the local, national and global levels through the efforts of our students, faculty, staff, graduates and strategic partnerships. In doing so, the College of Health Sciences will contribute to the value of the student experience at The University of Tulsa and the advancement of both the University and the Tulsa Region.
The mission of the College of Health Sciences fully embraces and incorporates the mission of The University of Tulsa and asserts that students will be able to think critically, write and speak clearly, behave ethically, accept leadership responsibilities, develop an appetite for lifelong learning, and succeed in their professional careers.
