Are you interested in majoring in health sciences? Are you looking for a health sciences school that is one of the largest in the nation? If so, Duquesne University’s John G. Rangos, Sr. School of Health Sciences is your answer.

According to the John G. Rangos, Sr. Charitable Foundation, Mr. Rangos was a former board member of Duquesne University and funded the School of Health Sciences at Duquesne, which is why it is appropriately named after him. The Rangos School of Health Sciences is located past the law school and just behind the university chapel. Inside, several series of floors are set up like open balconies and students can be seen hustling to class. I met with Pam Poletti- the assistant to the dean- who was more than happy to reveal several facts about the building.

The Rangos School of Health Sciences was first founded in 1990. Originally a gymnasium, the building was transformed into the school it is today. However, a piece of the original gymnasium floor is framed and on display for all to see. Twenty two years later, the Rangos School is now home to students who major in athletic training, occupational therapy, physical therapy, physician assistant studies, speech-language pathology, and health management systems.

Ms. Poletti believes that these programs are very important, because they address health issues, both physically and mentally. And after four and a half years, her favorite aspect about Rangos is its architecture. She loves the overall setup of the floors and has a nice view from her office.

Duquesne’s John G. Rangos, Sr. School of Health Sciences can proudly exclaim their premium internship and clinical opportunities available to students, as well as a 99 percent job placement rate in virtually every major. Any college student or high school senior interested in majoring in health sciences should immediately visit the school for themselves. For more information, contact the Rangos School of Health Sciences by phone at (412) 396-6652, or by email at rshs@duq.edu.
