Health Professions....Because You Feel Inspired to Pursue a Career that Allows You to Help Others.

But you also want a job you’ll love, that pays well, and provides room for growth.

Pursuing a career in the health professions just makes sense if you are concerned about things like job demand, security, salary, and satisfaction. Pursuing that opportunity at Marian University--where there is actually an H in STEHM (science, technology, engineering, HEALTH, and mathematics)--is beyond smart.

Here at Marian University, we are fully invested in our health professions programs and dedicated to the mission of graduating future exercise science professionals, nurses, and doctors of osteopathic medicine who will become transformational leaders in their fields. You will get the best of both worlds on this campus—our Franciscan heritage and values along with state-of-the-art facilities.

As a health professions student, you will spend a lot of time in the new Michael A. Evans Center for Health Sciences, benefiting from its incredibly advanced technology as well as the collaborative opportunities presented by our dedicated faculty and their innovative approach to teaching.

You will have access to interprofessional training and internships with clinical partners throughout a city and state recognized as the life-sciences hub of the country. Or challenge yourself on a more global level with one of our medical missions.
