School of Health Professions
Hunter’s Institute of Health Sciences, dedicated to the educational preparation of a range of health care professions, opened its doors on East 106th Street in 1968. Six years later, the Institute became the School of Health Sciences and moved downtown to the Brookdale Campus. In 2014, the name was changed to the School of Health Professions. Today the School's mission is the education of the next generation of health care professionals in the areas of Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology and Physical Therapy. These professionals will work in health care centers, schools, organizations and private practice to improve the lives of those they assist through direct service delivery, research and education.
