President’s Welcome Message

President’s Welcome Message

On behalf of Western University of Health Sciences, it is my privilege to welcome you as the newest members of the WesternU family. 

In joining this closely knit community, you will find our University mission – “To produce, in a humanistic tradition, health care professionals and biomedical knowledge that will enhance and extend the quality of life in our communities” – is more than just a worthy philosophy.

Rather, it is a foundation that informs and sustains all of our educational, research, and service endeavors. It is part of everything we do. It is part of every goal. It underscores how we treat one another as we teach and heal together.

Our primary goal at Western University of Health Sciences is to shape the new students you are now into the health science professionals you will be tomorrow – to better the world through technical excellence and compassionate care, all steeped in an ethos of scientific humanism. 

All of us at WesternU are privileged and eager to be your partners on this journey. Welcome!

Daniel R. Wilson, MD, PhD
President, Western University of Health Sciences
