Think about some of the stories you’ve heard, the ones that drew you in. Maybe you found these stories so appealing because you anticipated that anything could happen. After all, the most exciting part of a story is often what’s coming next. Now think about your own story. What’s next for you? 

Gannon University’s Morosky College of Health Professions and Sciences can prepare you to become knowledgeable, innovative and socially responsible professionals within your career and communities. 

The Morosky College offers more than two dozen degree programs for you to choose from, from the associate to doctoral level. Among these programs are Nursing, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, Physician Assistant, Public Health, and Sport and Exercise Science. These programs will equip you to play a major role in advocating for the health of our community and environment.

You can also take advantage of one of more than 25 accelerated programs offered in conjunction with medical, dental, veterinary, and pharmacy schools. These programs include a 4+4 Early Acceptance Dental Medicine; a 3+4 and 4+4 Early Acceptance Pre-medical; and 2+3/2+4, 3+3/3+4, and 4+3/4+4 Early Acceptance Pharmacy programs with the Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine (LECOM). Our accelerated program offerings and customized curricula will help you become a competitive professional school applicant.

Gannon University’s expansion to the Ruskin, Florida, campus accommodates additional graduate-level program offerings in the rehabilitative sciences. The entry-level Occupational Therapy Doctorate or Doctor of Physical Therapy allows you to conveniently begin your education with a bachelor’s degree at the Erie campus before transferring to Ruskin to pursue your doctoral degree.

Programs such as Nursing, Radiologic Sciences, and Respiratory Care have placement rates for graduates at or near 100%, and many of our students have job offers to choose from before graduation.

At Gannon, we emphasize a healthy blend of classroom instruction and real-world experience. For example, you can study tropical marine biology in the Bahamas or occupational therapy in Ecuador. Others participate in our student-run pro bono pediatric occupational therapy and adult physical therapy clinics or conduct research alongside faculty in the lab, field, or clinical environment.

The Human Performance Laboratory is a unique resource for Physical Therapy, Sport and Exercise Science, Human Performance, Occupational Therapy, and Biomedical Engineering students to explore motion analysis using advanced technology. You can also study in the 5,800-sq. ft. Patient Simulation Center, the largest in the region. Other students pursue aquatic research opportunities on Lake Erie aboard the 48-foot vessel Environaut.

Gannon’s campus is central to many businesses, industries, and organizations. This urban campus in the heart of downtown is just walking distance from restaurants, shopping, entertainment, and Lake Erie beaches and within a two-hour drive of Cleveland, Buffalo, and Pittsburgh.

On campus, there is something for everyone to enjoy. Our friendly environment is the perfect place to join on-campus activities through our 140+ clubs and organizations in addition to student-run events, movies, concerts, and trips. The Recreation and Wellness Center includes an indoor fieldhouse and running track, swimming pool, basketball courts, golf simulator, and an array of exercise equipment to help you stay active.
