UWM made up by students.

Established in 2023, the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee College of Health Professions and Sciences offers a wide array of health-related academic programs in biomedical sciences, global health, health care administration, nursing, the rehabilitation sciences and sustainable peacebuilding.

The faculty and staff in these areas are training our graduates for high-demand careers. Many of our degree programs are nationally recognized and ranked and have achieved the highest accreditation possible.

The academic quality of our programs is excellent, and through our outreach and e-Learning programs, we have extended access to our educational resources to distant locations. Our interdisciplinary collaborations continue to expand, which has enabled us to establish a distinguished presence on campus and become an engine for innovation for southeastern Wisconsin.

Through research, our faculty, staff and students continue to break new ground and pioneer investigations that are helping advance discoveries critical to the health care professions and sciences.

We are proudly dedicated to serving our community through fruitful partnership with many organizations, alumni and friends.
