Office of the Dean

As you imagine yourself in a health care profession, consider the skills you’ll need to emerge into the job market feeling competent and well-prepared. Then consider these facts about WSU’s health professions programs:

Aside from our top-quality programs, can-do attitude, and commitment to making your educational “climb” as convenient and work-friendly as possible, our career ladder programs are chosen by students time and time again over the competition.

Why? These are some of the reasons:

  • Flexible scheduling. We know your time is valuable. We take every possible measure to ensure that you receive credit for ALL of the courses you take at WSU, even if you have to reduce your credit load or take a break from school.
  • Cutting-edge, relevant programs. All of our programs are designed with the working professional in mind, which means that, regardless of the program you choose, you’ll receive employable skills every step of the way.
  • Personalized encouragement. We’re one of a handful of universities that allows you to develop your skills in very specialized areas, offering the technological conveniences of the largest institutions while providing the most personalized attention imaginable.

Dean Simonian, and the rest of those in the dean's office, is more than happy to assist you in any way possible as you seek to involve yourself in the great programs in the Dumke College of Health Professions.  We look forward to helping you find success and satisfaction in health professions.
