Leading the Way in Academic Health Care:
Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences

With the establishment of Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences, Rutgers—already a leading national research university—now stands as one of America’s largest, most comprehensive university-based centers for studying and improving human health and health care.

As we advance medical innovation, provide direct patient care informed by the latest research findings, and educate a full complement of health care professionals, Rutgers is equipped as never before to transform lives.

For Rutgers and the region, the advantages of having a highly regarded health care division attached to The State University of New Jersey are considerable as we

  • draw more top-flight faculty and students;
  • deepen our research collaborations;
  • optimize the coordination of health care for residents;
  • accelerate economic growth; and
  • attract even greater public and private support.

It’s a brilliant new era for medical education, research, and practice in New Jersey.
