Organizational Overview Loyola University Chicago's Parkinson School of Health Sciences and Public Health (est. 2019) is an innovative new school committed to applying an entrepreneurial philosophy of educational excellence, research, and service as a means to achieve the goals of improving human potential through the health sciences and the promotion of health equity. Our graduates put their knowledge and skills to work in the public, private, and non-governmental organization sectors in areas such as healthcare systems and services, public health, and higher education.
The Parkinson School is the newest expansion of the Loyola University Health Sciences Campus, which is uniquely positioned, through its partnership with the Loyola University Health System and Trinity Health, to develop academic, research, and engagement programs that meet the needs of an expanding healthcare environment. Our academic vision is centered on the most urgent and complex problems facing health and health care today. Because these problems are complex, the foremost way to fulfill this vision is for faculty and students from Loyola's many Schools to work jointly in interdisciplinary and collaborative fashion, advancing a model of One Loyola.
Through four areas of study (Applied Health Sciences, Healthcare Administration, Health Informatics and Data Science, and Public Health Sciences) within the Parkinson School, faculty teach, challenge, and mentor undergraduate and graduate students, as well as career professionals. We emphasize interdisciplinary learning, collaboration, and care for communities, while maintaining a focus on better understanding all the social determinants of health. Our faculty pursue a range of scholarly research that incorporates systems- and design-thinking which translates into sustainable, scalable solutions to advance knowledge and improve health and the delivery of care. Our graduates are well-positioned to tackle dynamic healthcare needs and public policy issues, particularly as they pertain to the underserved and those living on the margins.
There has never been a more important time to build a new interdisciplinary health sciences and public health school. Parkinson School faculty are called to develop the next generation of healthcare leaders who will drive change and expand knowledge in the service of humanity through learning, justice, and faith.
