OSU Health Sciences

The Exploring program at OSU Health Sciences is for current high school juniors and seniors. While the program is open to students of all backgrounds, our post aims to increase the number of historically underrepresented populations in health sciences, including Black/African American, Native American, Asian, and Hispanic. We are actively seeking to increase the diversity of the student population, so we can better serve the health science profession and the nation’s health.
Students will learn about health science careers through interactions with faculty, staff, and students within the College of Nursing, Optometry, Pharmacy, Public Health, the School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences, and College of Medicine. Meeting monthly at The Ohio State University, student participants will gain hands-on experience, learn about cutting edge research within the profession, and acquire ways to prepare for a future career in the healthcare industry.
