A focused, effective start to a career in healthcare

Many of our graduates pursue graduate professional programs in medicine, public health or hospital administration.

Ohio State’s health sciences program is a foundational undergraduate degree that introduces students to the healthcare field and provides in-depth science learning. Graduates go on to work in healthcare positions or pursue advanced graduate programs. At Ohio State, graduate school options include a PhD program in health and rehabilitative sciences and graduate professional studies in such areas as medicine, dentistry, occupational therapy or physical therapy. 

Students can further broaden their education with an academic minor to explore other areas such as aging, integrative approaches to health and wellness, cognitive science and disability studies.
