A Leader in Health and Rehabilitation Sciences
The School has a distinguished history, beginning with its establishment in 1966 by Dr. Robert J. Atwell, a leader in Health and Rehabilitation Sciences.

We’re among the 13 schools that founded the Association of Schools of Allied Health Professionals, now the American Society of Allied Health Professionals, in which our School, faculty and alumni continue to play a vital role.
