Bringing Health Professionals Together

Through our affiliation with CHI Health, the largest health system in the region, you’ll have access to a vibrant community of healthcare professionals who are leaders in their areas and dedicated to patient care. From your professors to the School’s dean, you’ll build professional rapport with individuals who treat you like a fellow clinician.  

A Commitment to Creating a Better World

Creighton University is committed to creating a better and more just world, living out the values of the Jesuit tradition of justice for all and service for others. In our community, examples of service to others include occupational therapy students providing fine motor screenings for underserved elementary school students, pharmacy students offering immunization clinics at homeless shelters and physical therapy students serving Native Americans. Our health-related service reflects men and women for and with others.

Flexible Learning in a Diverse Setting

You don’t have to be on campus to experience Creighton’s vibrant academic community. We are leaders in hybrid education and offer distance-based learning pathways in pharmacy and occupational therapy. The School of Pharmacy and Health Professions has a devoted office for distance education committed to building effective learning communities through leading edge technology. At Creighton, you will learn alongside students from all over the U.S. and around the world while also serving a diverse population of patients.

Leadership Opportunities

Creighton University and the School of Pharmacy and Health Professions (SPAHP) prepare students to lead in all aspects of healthcare, from owning a practice to serving on regional and national committees. All students are required to participate in their national organizations and encouraged to attend national meetings. Students may also participate in our leadership development program to further develop their skills.

I have never met a group of better people than I have at Creighton. You are all the most wonderful, dedicated, caring, understanding, and genuinely nice group of individuals on earth. You all make me so glad I came to Creighton University.
— Robert Gaffin, NRP, AAS, Doctor of Pharmacy Candidate, Class of 2022

As a SPAHP student, you will develop your cultural competence and leadership skills through interprofessional learning abroad. We offer international health programs in the Dominican Republic and China.
