    The USA offers exceptional opportunities in the health care and health sciences sector. There are growing employment prospects in a wide range of allied health professions within a dynamic industry.

    A health sciences degree can also prepare you for medical school in the US or for further academic and research degrees. With huge amounts of research funding and development work in the health sciences field, you’ll have many opportunities to work with professors on research projects and get hands-on experience with the latest technologies.

    Simmons University has affiliations with many internationally respected medical institutions to offer a wide range of opportunities for practical placements.

    The US higher education system is considered one of the best in the world and offers flexible study opportunities. US degrees are recognized worldwide for their academic excellence and enhanced learning experiences.

    International students who graduate with a US degree can enjoy the benefits of Optional Practical Training (OPT). OPT allows students to stay in the USA and work for 1 or 3 years in a position related to their major, while on their student visa.

    Many Simmons University health science degrees are STEM-classified (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics), which means that graduates are allowed a maximum of three years of work.

    Degree programs in the US often hold accreditation that can be recognized internationally. Simmons health science degrees are accredited by the Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education, Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics, Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education, Council on Education for Public Health.

    Societies around the world are becoming more complex with disruptive technologies, advances in science and medicine, and the constant evolution of healthcare systems. Simmons is committed to preparing students, who will not only be change agents in this environment but also transformational leaders in these efforts.

    Health science graduates have excellent career prospects internationally as researchers, community health workers, healthcare practitioners, and health administration and management roles.

    Situated in Boston’s renowned Longwood Medical Area, the Simmons University campus is surrounded by world-renowned teaching hospitals and research facilities — like Brigham and Women's Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Boston Children's Hospital, and Massachusetts General Hospital.

    Health sciences students are in demand for clinical rotations, research, and employment opportunities with leading experts in the industry.

    In the most recent survey of Simmons graduates employed full-time, Health care is the top field of employment, and 97% of graduates were in positions related to their major.
