ACADEMIC ADVISING 
 

The School of Health Sciences is continuing with the suspension of in-person advising, and requests telephone and virtual advising.

To schedule your appointment or transfer student orientation, contact the advising office at (248) 370-2369 or shs@oakland.edu. Phone and virtual appointments are most effective when students have access to a computer or other device and a strong internet connection. When scheduling an appointment, choose a time that permits this, and if it is an issue, please contact your adviser. 

CLINICAL EXPERIENCES AND EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING

Currently, all undergraduate and graduate student clinical experiences, internships, and practicums remain suspended as we continue to follow Governor Whitmer’s emergency and disaster declarations, and the policies of our community partners. 

We are working diligently with external community partners and accreditors to find innovative solutions to meet program standards, and are making every effort to reduce disruption to students’ current plan of study. 

These are extraordinary times. Follow general illness prevention guidelines outlined by the CDC. Stay focused on positive health values, including advancing your own education in order to better help others.

Welcome to the School of Health Sciences. We are a community of health advocates. We lead change in health and wellness. We face challenges while building solutions. We are in purpose, for health.

As the Dean, I am proud of the supportive environment we offer for students, faculty, staff and partners pursuing innovative learning, meaningful service and vibrant research endeavors through our knowledge model.

Going through school at Oakland University really taught me the importance of perseverance toward achieving my goals. I loved learning with different faculty members and students from different walks of life.

Since graduating from the School of Health Sciences, I was accepted to the Oakland University William Beaumont School of Medicine where I know I was prepared very well. I had a strong foundation of clinical knowledge that put me at an advantage compared to my classmates.

One of the key things that caught my eye at Oakland University is that it is close to home, it’s right in my backyard, and with the School of Health Sciences here, it just allows you to have an awesome opportunity to go into a lot of different professions to help people, and I’ve always known that’s what I wanted to do, so that’s what really drew me to this school in itself is that it’s going to allow me to display my passion.

During my undergraduate degree, I took an intro to community health class. The professor that taught this class was so passionate about the topic and each topic spoke to me and one day I had this ah-ha moment and I knew this was what I wanted to do with the rest of my life.

In the School of Health Sciences, we serve over two thousand students, through distinct community-engaged programs. Built upon the foundations of the natural and behavioral sciences, the Oakland University School of Health Sciences transforms students in leaders, connects theory to best practices and impacts the needs of community in purpose, for health.
