Real-World Experiences Enriching Education

For more than a century, Northeastern University’s Bouvé College of Health Sciences has championed a simple idea: Experience deepens learning. Here, at one of the nation’s leading health science colleges, future pharmacists, policymakers, administrators, nurses, physical therapists, scientists, speech therapists, and psychologists learn from renowned professors, while apprenticing alongside preeminent clinicians and researchers at top health institutions.

Bouvé College of Health Sciences encompasses three exceptional schools, Health Professions, Nursing, and Pharmacy. Together, these institutions leverage interdisciplinary collaboration and strategic synergies to tackle the world’s most pressing health challenges.

It is this cross-pollination of academic rigor, interdisciplinary perspectives and globally recognized experiential learning that distinguishes Bouvé and its graduates.
