Health & Medicine Profile

Where tomorrow's leaders in health get their start

The personal attention and intimate class sizes of a small private college with the powerful academic resources of a well-rounded research university, Nova Southeastern University is the ideal place to get a solid foundation in the health professions.

Our internationally acclaimed Health Professions Division (HPD) has everything you need to launch your health professions career, including:
• A 20,000-sq. ft. library
• Facilities for patient-simulation training
• Scientific laboratories
• A 50-station computer lab
• Average class size of 15 students

Professors, not assistants, teach all our classes. Plus, our innovative Center for Collaborative Research (CCR) features an IBM supercomputer, one of Florida’s largest wet labs, the NSU Technology Incubator, and some of the world’s most accomplished researchers.

And because almost all of NSU’s prestigious graduate and professional schools are right on campus, you don’t have to go far for your master’s or doctoral degree.

Stand out from the crowd

Reach your goals ahead of schedule

NSU originated this concept, which automatically reserves your spot in one of our acclaimed graduate or professional programs while you earn your bachelor’s degree. So if you’ve always wanted to go to medical school, you can apply, lock it in, and focus on other things.

Life beyond campus
There are so many things that distinguish NSU: academic reputation, community involvement, the South Florida lifestyle, and even comfortable residence halls close to the Don Taft University Center’s recreation complex, on-campus dining, and, of course, your classes.

NSU’s ultramodern campus features one of the largest libraries in Florida, the Alvin Sherman Library, Research, and Information Technology Center. The library’s five floors are packed with academic resources, have total wireless access, and even house a café.

There are also more than 120 clubs and organizations on campus, including academic clubs and pre-professional honor societies to help you get a leg up on your medical career, along with a powerful student government, socially active fraternities and sororities, and intramural sports.
