NSU HPD Catalog 2021-2022

NSU Health Professions Division 3 Nova Southeastern University’s Health Professions Division is playing a vital role in educating the next generation of health care leaders. The division currently comprises colleges in seven distinct fields—osteopathic medicine, pharmacy, optometry, dental medicine, health care sciences, nursing, and allopathic medicine—that offer more than 70 diverse degree and certificate programs. In terms of our academic structure, we are always looking to enhance our students’ educational experience at NSU’s campuses in Fort Lauderdale/Davie, Fort Myers, Jacksonville, Miami, Miramar, Orlando, Palm Beach, Tampa Bay, and Puerto Rico. This is accomplished by implementing the most cutting-edge technology and through our continually evolving curricula, which is overseen by a caring cadre of faculty and staff members. The university celebrated a milestone in its history with the launch of the more than 300,000-square-foot Tampa Bay Regional Campus in Clearwater, Florida, which is one of the most highly advanced instructive sites in the United States. This campus, which offers the most progressive pedagogy and technology possible, also features distinctive design aspects to provide students with the optimal educational experience. Now operating, the Tampa Bay Regional Campus houses an additional site for NSU’s Dr. Kiran C. Patel College of Osteopathic Medicine. However, the Dr. Pallavi Patel College of Health Care Sciences and the Ron and Kathy Assaf College of Nursing are also represented there. These colleges stand alongside each other, not as separate programs or separate schools, but as collaborative and collegial health education entities. The NSU Health Professions Division is committed to ensuring that our current and future students receive a comprehensive education at an academic institution that has established a reputation for being dynamic, innovative, and interprofessional in its academic approach.
