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.
