Ferris State University Big Rapids MI College

Dean's Welcome

The programs in the College of Health Professions are among those in most demand today. This website is designed to give you an overview of the college. In addition to explaining the programs that we offer, it contains many links to other sites where you can find answers to your questions. Here you can learn more about the career potential and requirements for each of the programs.

Each of the programs has limited enrollment to assure that once you begin the professional sequence of courses, you will be able to be placed into an internship site to gain “real world” experience and graduate on time. On-campus courses are taught in state of the art classrooms and laboratories. Here students have an opportunity to practice their skills prior to their internship experience. In addition to the programs offered on-campus, there are opportunities for students to complete program requirements at sites around Michigan. Also, some of the programs have on-line components.

Faculty members in the college are committed to excellence in their teaching. All are credentialed in their specific discipline and have many years of professional practice before they became teachers. Their expertise means that students are taught by faculty who understand health care. Class sizes are small so students can get to know their instructors. The college maintains affiliations with over 100 facilities and agencies to provide internship opportunities for students.

Although it is possible to learn about the programs from the website, the best way to gain the full picture is by visiting the campus. We invite you to visit our facilities and meet with program faculty and see how our hands-on laboratories will enable you to make the most of your educational learning experience. I encourage you to plan such a visit.

We in the College of Health Professions are proud of our programs and our graduates. We hope that you choose to become a student in one of the programs in the college.
