Center for Health Sciences
Medicine has been described as both an art and a science, and at Parkside, we believe this to be true. The degrees, programs, and students within the Center for Health Sciences reflect this duality. Successful applicants to professional programs not only need to be strong academic performers and scholars, they also need to be dedicated to the field of health and medicine, be committed to helping others, and have a strong sense of community service.
At Parkside, all of these facets are emphasized. Upon graduation our programs prepared you to be a competitive candidate for professional programs as demonstrated by our high percentage of students gaining acceptance to these programs. Your success will be due in part to a well-developed program of intrusive and detailed advising which includes personalized course selection and schedules, admissions test preparation, internship assistance, application guidance, practice interviews, and many other areas of support.
We would like to say that there is no part of a student’s educational and professional journey that we will not be a part of. It has been and continues to be our goal to create an environment within the program where you feel supported and know there is a place on campus where you can always come for help and guidance. You are not just a number, we truly and sincerely want to help and guide you on every step along your journey. Most importantly, we believe that you can be successful at achieving your educational and professional goals-it is our job to help you get there.
