Health Sciences at MU
Excellence Already Exists
Methodist University is already a top University in the region for higher education in the Health Sciences. Since 1997, the master’s-level Physician Assistant Program has established itself as one of the top programs of its kind in the country, garnering hundreds of applications nationwide for its 40-seat cohorts.
The MU Nursing Program offers a pre-licensure BSN and graduate programs for working nurses interested in administration. The Doctor of Physical Therapy Program has established a track record of high student performance. The Doctor of Occupational Therapy Program was the first fully accredited, entry-level doctoral program in occupational therapy in the state of North Carolina, and a bachelor’s-level program training occupational therapy assistants (OTAs) will begin enrolling students in Fall 2023. MU also offers a selection of health care degrees online for students who are looking for a more flexible option.
