    Established as the School of Health Professions in 2004, the school has since evolved with the addition of a pharmacy program in December 2007.   Within the school, successful students earn one of the following degrees: Bachelor of Science in exercise science, Bachelor of Science in physician assistant, Bachelor of Science in rehabilitation services, Master of Science in rehabilitation counseling, a Doctor of Physical Therapy degree and beginning fall 2010, a Doctor of Pharmacy degree.

    The school was established to facilitate the training of health care professionals through an integrated approach, based on a health perspective that focuses on prevention, wellness and evidence-based practice in answer to the workforce needs of the state.
