The School of Health Professions is new at Samford University, but our history in the health professions is long. The Department of Kinesiology has been educating students for many years. Our graduates have a history of success in professional graduate programs, medical, physical therapy and dental schools and career professions.

In the coming years, we will be adding new programs to broaden the reach of our school and help more students answer the calling of their lives.

New thinking to prepare students for the changing health care environment

Health care today is increasingly delivered by teams of professionals from a broad range of specialties and professions working in collaboration. To prepare our graduates to thrive in today’s dynamic environment, we have built our curricula to foster inter-disciplinary collaboration between students in every school of the College of Health Sciences. As a student in the School of Health Professions, you may find yourself working with nursing students or nutrition majors. It’s an innovative approach that ensures each graduate is prepared for the career of their choosing.
