Bouvé College of Health Sciences


Calling All Changemakers

Every world changing, life-saving breakthrough started in the mind of an original thinker. Someone who refused to accept what was, and instead relentlessly chased the potential of what could be.

Since its inception in 1964 as a prestigious women’s college of physical education and physical therapy, Bouvé College of Health Sciences has evolved into one of the premiere health science institutions in the country. The goal — attracting change agents, bring them together, and show them the world — so they can understand how to change it for the better.

From local to global scales, new health challenges will always be emerging, we’re developing the minds who will meet them head on.

What happens here,
changes everything out there.

Whether your passion is community health or shaping future healthcare policy at the national level, Bouvé equips students across our degrees with the tools, experience and professional network to make real change.

Healthcare technology is developing at a rapid rate worldwide. But at our core, we’re still humans treating humans. When we see the whole person, not the patient, we create lasting health. That philosophy drives all that we do and is a foundational pillar to the student experience at Bouvé.

Healthcare challenges at every level can benefit from a global perspective. We give our students the keys to the world through global studies, co-op and real practical work experience, because what they bring back in return might just be the keys to unlock everything.

Here at Bouvé we take a radically different approach to teaching healthcare. As a result, we’re developing rule breaking game changers across every level of the global health community. These are their stories.

Our Philosophy

No matter where a student chooses to get their education, they’ll likely be taught that nothing is more important than hands-on experience, especially in the field of healthcare.

But at Bouvé, ‘hands-on experience’ only scratches the surface of what’s possible. We believe fostering true agents of change means acting as one ourselves, by offering experiential, co-op, and transdisciplinary learning opportunities — from day one.

No other health sciences college offers what we do, so it’s no surprise that attracts one-of-a-kind talent to our doorstep.

Our Philosophy


Advancing health for everyone across the healthspan – from campus to community; from cells to society; from local engagement to global impact.


To be the leader in shaping and driving the transformation of healthcare to healthspan. This vision challenges the traditional healthcare system which is based on sickness and treating the sick. By contrast, healthspan focuses on prolonging and advancing quality of life throughout one’s lifetime despite risk factors, disease and disability.

Our vision is timely given the disruption occurring within the healthcare industry resulting from innovative digital technologies and the rise of precision medicine – which is personalized care based on the interplay of people’s biology, lifestyle and environment.

In order to achieve our vision, we have established the below strategic priorities that harness the power of Northeastern and leverage the expertise of our licensed clinical and public health faculty, who are in tune with reality because of their work in hospitals, clinics, schools, home and community-based settings. Their practice informs teaching, research and innovation.
