Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences Overview

At Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences (RBHS), we are leading the way in education, research and clinical care. We are one of only a few academic health centers in the country with schools in medicine, dentistry, nursing, allied health, pharmacy, public health and biomedical science.

RBHS, integral to Rutgers' mission, works collaboratively with many other academic, research, and clinical units throughout the university and the region. We are committed to a mission of excellence in biomedical and health care education, research, clinical care, and improving access to health care and reducing health disparities. Our focus is interprofessional and multidisciplinary. Other qualities that distinguish us include outstanding postgraduate training for residents, continuing education, hospital and clinical affiliations, and community-focused health care.

RBHS is poised to excel in today's changing health care environment. The enactment of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act has shifted the focus of health care from large regional centers toward community centers. Further, rapid changes in technology will provide new opportunities for patient care and research.
