Our students are readily involved in student enrichment experiences that expands their education and supports their development as the leaders of tomorrow. Some of these opportunities include:

Honors in Health and Rehabilitation Sciences

  • Go above and beyond degree program requirements to create a breadth of experiences through academic enrichment, service projects, study abroad, leadership in student organizations and research. If a student does not enter the university as an Honors student, they can apply in HRS for Honors status after one academic term. Learn more about our Honors Program.

Health Science Scholars Program

  • Develops and supports a community of high-ability undergraduate students interested in health-related majors and careers through opportunities to explore interest areas, learn about career options and serve together at Ohio State and beyond.
