The School of Health Professions at LIU Brooklyn is dedicated to providing superior quality education in the health professions to a diverse student body. With strong ties to the community and to many health care facilities that support educational efforts as well as research, our programs address clinical health care, community-based health and social issues. The school prepares students for careers in the areas of respiratory care; diagnostic medical sonography; physician assistant; occupational therapy; athletic training, health and exercise science (including sport management and exercise physiology); physical therapy; social work; and public health. The programs also introduce students to interprofessional practice.

Our programs span the undergraduate, graduate and doctoral levels, and lead to careers in growing professions that offer a wealth of career opportunities. Graduates of our programs are in high demand in the current health care job market, and this level of demand will continue for many years to come.

The School of Health Professions’ faculty members are renowned experts in their fields and have vast experience in their respective areas of specialization, which contributes to their exceptional teaching abilities.
