Dean's Welcome


Dean Gregory H. FrazerWe are proud of our commitment to health professions education begun almost two decades ago.

The Rangos School is the academic home to programs in Athletic Training (B.S.A.T.), Health Management Systems (B.S.H.M.S., M.H.M.S.), Occupational Therapy (M.S.O.T.), Physical Therapy (D.P.T.), Physician Assistant Studies (M.P.A.S.), Speech-Language Pathology (M.S.), and Ph.D. in Rehabilitation Sciences. Our programs emphasize the scientific and interpersonal aspects of clinical practice and typify teamwork and collaboration among the various health professionals in the modern American healthcare environment.

Students in the Rangos School are challenged with contemporary curricula, clinically-skilled, nationally-known faculty, master their clinical skills in state-of-the-industry laboratories, and have varied and excellent internship/clinical placements. Faculty are contemporary clinicians actively engaged in clinical practice who serve as national accreditation site reviewers in almost every discipline. All of the programs housed in the Rangos School are fully accredited. Graduates are rewarded with a 99% placement rate in all majors.

The Rangos School is one of the largest of its kind in the nation with over 45 full-time faculty and staff and over a thousand students enrolled in our programs. We offer freshmen admission as well as transfer opportunities. The academic programs housed here represent some of the fastest growing occupations in the country.  The healthcare community of western Pennsylvania provides a premium experience for our clinical practice professions students along with administration and management students. The Rangos School prides itself on the diverse, high-quality internship opportunities available to students in every discipline.
