Our website is designed to provide information about the health professions programs at Eastern Illinois University. It is meant to be useful to students currently in these programs at EIU and by prospective students considering attending EIU.
Except for nursing and clinical laboratory sciences, careers in health professions typically require a master's degree or higher. Therefore, most students should plan to finish a bachelor's degree and apply to a specific school to complete their schooling.
The menu links at left contain specific information about health professions options at EIU along with tips to help with advising and making yourself a competitive applicant.
