Dear Students,

Welcome to the College of Science and Health at Charles R. Drew University of Medicine and Science! We at the College of Science and Health (COSH) and Charles R. Drew University are very proud of our history and tradition that stands with the highest ideals of academic excellence and service to under-resourced communities by educating future leaders in science, healthcare, and public health who are committed to these ideals. Our biomedical sciences, clinical sciences, and public health programs provide essential and advanced knowledge for professional roles and ongoing learning involving all students in research, service, and community engagement.

This University arose out of the needs of our community, and we never forget that our mission is dedicated to health equity and social justice for underserved populations, both here in the United States and the international arena. Our faculty are dedicated to their students, and our graduates are known for their excellence, compassion, and leadership abilities. In addition to the substantive content and skills of each area of study, our programs also include education in critical thinking, the impact of societal and historical forces, and innovative approaches to envisioning and transforming the future.

COSH offers undergraduate and graduate degree programs in biomedical sciences, psychology, public health, physician assistant, and radiological science. We are dedicated to our students’ success both here at CDU and as you go forward to achieve your personal and professional goals. We invite you to find a home here with us in a supportive professional and educational community with a common vision for a better future.

 

Sincerely,

Monica Ferrini, PhD, MS
