Prospective Students Health Sciences Furman University

Our department gives future Health Sciences professionals all they need to pursue careers in wellness, medicine, and much more. Small, challenging classes give students an abundance of personal attention.

Undergraduates at Furman enjoy Health Sciences resources that are unparalleled for a college of our size. We have a large, well-equipped fitness center and two laboratories devoted to research into human performance. Visitors from more than 40 states and five continents have travelled to the campus to receive fitness testing in the Molnar Human Performance laboratory.

Furman Health Sciences students also have research opportunities not available at larger universities, where graduate students primarily conduct most of the research. This opportunity provides our students with the added benefit of a mentoring relationship with a full-time professor whose focus is on undergraduate instruction.

Our Health Sciences programs are designed to help our students launch health-related careers and to gain admission to graduate and professional schools. The department attracts students focused on gaining admission to competitive programs in medicine, dentistry, physical therapy, physician assistant, occupational therapy, nursing, nutrition, pharmacy, and public health.

In its most recent graduating class, 75 percent of the majors began graduate study in one of the above health-related disciplines. Nearly every major has a significant engaged learning experience through an internship or undergraduate research.
