Congdon School of Health Sciences

Congdon School of Health Sciences

Welcome from the Dean

High Point University’s Congdon School of Health Sciences currently offers an undergraduate program in Exercise Science, a graduate program offering a Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies degree and a fifth-year Masters in Athletic Training degree. In addition, we are developing a proposed program offering a Doctor of Physical Therapy degree.

The school, led by Dean Daniel Erb, PT, PhD, has an inter-professional approach to education. Through excellence in teaching, scholarship, evidence-based clinical practice and community engagement, students will experience first hand what it means to be a patient-centered, compassionate healthcare professional, who is dedicated to life-long learning and an inter-professional approach to achieving optimal outcomes with the patients/clients in the communities they serve.

High Point University is preparing students in the School of Health Sciences to meet a growing demand for healthcare professionals across the country.


Along with preparing graduates for in-demand careers, the jobs and activity generated by the School of Health Sciences and the School of Pharmacy will provide an economic boost to the Piedmont Triad.

Leadership and faculty at High Point University are taking a long-term outlook on student success. We’re not preparing students just to find jobs when they graduate, we’re preparing them to function in a healthcare system for the next 40 to 50 years.

The university has assembled a prestigious and highly published faculty to guide its students. Students are working side by side with individuals who will help guide what future practice will become. Rather than reading about it and trying to use it in the clinic later, they will experience it first hand right now. This fits with the university’s core tenet of experiential learning.
