Welcome to the School of Health Sciences

Established in April 2011, Elon's School of Health Sciences will serve graduate students in the existing doctor of physical therapy (DPT) program along with students in the physician assistant (PA) studies master's program, which enrolled its first class in January 2013. The School of Health Sciences is housed in the Gerald L. Francis Center on Haggard Avenue, which features classrooms, simulation/exam rooms and observation rooms, and a variety of clinical laboratories.

The School of Health Sciences is the university's sixth major academic unit, joining Elon College, the College of Arts and Sciences; the Martha and Spencer Love School of Business; the School of Communications; the School of Education and Elon University School of Law.
