Alliance for Health Sciences > The Partners
Rosalind Franklin has more than 2,000 students in over 30 graduate health profession and science programs. It is recognized for its forward-thinking curriculum that emphasizes interprofessional practice and collaborative care. Its students experience a wide range of practice settings with greater access to patient care early in the treatment plan thanks to a strong national network of hospitals and health care community partners. That's why nearly 10,000 students applied for the 743 spots in Rosalind Franklin's master's and doctoral programs last year. The university includes:
The School of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies offers combined MD/PhD and DPM/PhD programs for students pursuing careers as scientists as well as practitioners.
DePaul has more than 23,000 students enrolled in some 300 degree programs and concentrations. Its academically rigorous programs are nationally recognized for incorporating hands-on, service-based learning that takes full advantage of Chicago's urban environment and resources.
The College of Science and Health houses DePaul's science and health programs. With more than 2,500 undergraduate and 760 graduate students enrolled, it's the fastest growing college at DePaul, underscoring both the university's reputation and student demand.
