Prepare for a Career in Health Care
Health care careers are among the most popular at Saint Louis University — for good reason. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that more jobs will be created in health care professions by 2030 than any other occupational category.
Saint Louis University has a dedicated college for health sciences — the Doisy College for Health Sciences, named for the Nobel Prize-winning SLU professor who discovered vitamin K — and for nursing — the Trudy Busch Valentine School of Nursing — but you'll also find health-related careers in schools throughout campus.
Graduate Ready for Your Career in Health Care
As a health care major at SLU, you'll be practicing your skills in some of the best hospitals and clinical sites available. Our health care programs take you from the classroom into high-tech learning labs and straight into contact with real patients and health care situations as an undergraduate.
Junior and senior year are all hands-on, clinical experiences as well as experience in the kitchen. Everything you learn in class, you put it to work."— Lissane Kafie, Nutrition and Dietetics Major
