The Health Sciences
The University's Health Sciences was established in 1972 to address the shortage of health care professionals and improve access to the most sophisticated types of medical care for residents of Nassau and Suffolk counties. Today, it is Long Island's only comprehensive academic health center, with a fourfold mission in education, research, patient care and community service. The center consists of the professional schools of: Dental Medicine, Health Technology and Management, Nursing and Social Welfare, as well as a Graduate Program in Public Health. The center also operates the Long Island State Veterans Home, a 350-bed facility offering residential and day care for veterans, and maintains affiliations with more than 150 hospitals, clinics, and social and public agencies.
