About the Health Sciences
As the healthcare system has evolved to better integrate the health sciences with physician-directed medicine, the UND School of Medicine & Health Sciences has evolved as well.
Although many of these health sciences programs have been available at UND for decades, it was not until the mid-1990s that the School changed its name to reflect its diverse program offerings. These professional offerings include: Athletic Training, Medical Laboratory Science, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, and Physician Assistant Studies. A Master of Public Health program was added in 2012.
The health sciences side of UND's School of Medicine & Health Sciences is administered by the School's Dean, Joshua Wynne, M.D., M.B.A., M.P.H., along with the following associate deans and department chairs:
All admissions to the health sciences programs are handled differently. Visit our Admissions page, or the departments' pages, for more specific information.
