Health care is an industry reinventing itself. Technology, an aging population, medical research and clinical advancements unimaginable 20 years ago are increasing the demand for responsive, responsible health care, while forcing changes to the way in which care is delivered. Increasingly, the model for patient care is shifting to interdisciplinary, collaborative teams of health care professionals in an effort to meet the demand, while simultaneously resulting in better patient outcomes.
While health care is changing faster than at any time in history, what hasn't changed, what will never change, is the need for skilled, compassionate caregivers who understand both the art and science of health care.
This is why Samford created the College of Health Sciences.
With the creation of the College of Health Sciences at Samford University, the demand for skilled, compassionate caregivers is met with exceptional people driven by their desire to care for their patients.
Four exceptional schools and two world-class centers make up the College of Health Sciences: School of Health Professions, Ida Moffett School of Nursing, McWhorter School of Pharmacy, and School of Public Health along with the Office of Faith and Health and the Experiential Learning and Simulation Center.
Across all four schools and in every program, we focus on four aspects of the college experience to better prepare our graduates for the world awaiting them following graduation. As a result, employment rates for Samford graduates continue to remain strong, which means the health-related career paths our students are choosing yield high returns on their investment by default. The College of Health Sciences at Samford University is where calling, education, and service meet.
