The professors are great! They really care about students success, and they do their best to help students achieve their goals. Most of the classes I have taken are very interesting and engaging. In general the atmosphere on campus allows students to question and explore new topics. Classes are set up as more of discussions, rather than huge lectures.

Jefferson is focused on health/biomedical sciences, so most of the students have the same general academic interests. The professors are very interested in their research, but also take time to make sure students can pursue their academic interests. There are a wide variety of classes offered on various topics in science. The workload is what you make of it. My program allows students to take classes at their own pace. Whether you are taking one class or 3 classes, you get out of it what you put into it. Working hard is necessary for success.

We have great opportunities for jobs and internships through the school, our degree is highly specialized yet we continue to learn of different career opportunities. Our alumni network is relatively young, but in the relatively few years of our existence, we have made a big name for ourselves among the healthcare community and it is found that preceptors request our students over students from the other local schools
