Regardless of the discipline, you will have a solid foundation to launch a successful career.

Students are exposed to meaningful and important research which expands the depth and breadth of learning. Our team of faculty, scientists and clinicians conduct innovative research that is recognized both nationally and internationally. EACPHS has a history of research excellence and having the opportunity to experience and participate in this work greatly expands learning.

EACPHS is committed to offering a first-class student experience through enhanced teaching models, faculty, peer and alumni mentoring opportunities, access to technology, exposure to a strong alumni network throughout Southeast Michigan and beyond. Our alumni are distinguished members of the society and bring a wealth of information from their lifelong experience to help students build their own career paths of success and distinction.
