What is the Health Sciences Community?

The Health Sciences Academic Residential Community is designed for students interested in exploring careers in health sciences including biomedical research, medicine, pharmacy, veterinary medicine, dental hygiene, public health, or any other health care career.

Why should I choose to live in this community?

As part of this community, you will have the opportunity to connect with health sciences program advisors and to explore career fields such as medicine, pharmacy, dental hygiene, veterinary medicine, ophthalmology, public health, and biomedical research, just to name a few. Careers in health care encompass a broad group of disciplines, with an almost unlimited range of professional and occupational choices.
