Wayne State University

Message from the Dean

Dean BhallaWelcome to the Eugene Applebaum College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences' (EACPHS) website. On behalf of the faculty, staff, and students in the EACPHS, I would like to thank you for your interest in our college. We invite you to take a few minutes to browse through our website and become familiar with the many pharmacy and health science disciplines that our College offers to prepare tomorrow's health care professionals.

As one of 13 colleges and schools of Wayne State University (WSU), the only urban research university in Michigan, many of our faculty have national and international reputations in research. They challenge our students to think beyond today's practices and contribute to new health care delivery systems and treatments.

Academically, we have an outstanding student population that works hard to achieve their professional goals under the guidance of talented, productive, and dedicated faculty and staff. Our students' learning environment extends beyond the classroom into a variety of clinical arenas, such as hospitals, and in the community reaching out to help the underserved. The educational environment at the EACPHS well-positions students to respond effectively in a rapidly changing health care system in their respective health care fields.

Our college is located on two campuses. The Applebaum Building, a 270,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art building on the southwest corner of the Detroit Medical Center, houses the Pharmacy programs—Pharmacy Practice and Pharmaceutical Sciences—and Health Science programs: Nurse Anesthesia, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, Physician Assistant Studies, Radiation Therapy Technology, Radiologic Technology, and Radiologist Assistant.

North a few blocks from the Applebaum Building and within walking distance is the WSU main campus, where our Mortuary Science building is located. It is in this 44,000-square-foot building that the Clinical Laboratory Science, Forensic Investigation, Mortuary Science, and Pathologists' Assistant programs share the most advanced teaching and research resources. While divided by location, we are one in providing quality education and opportunities for our students.

Wayne State University's location places its students in the immediate vicinity to take advantage of learning at some of the best hospitals and from some of the most respected health care professionals in the United States. Our college is truly an exciting institution in which to learn, work, and teach. It is an institution of higher education that is continually challenging tomorrow's health care professionals to achieve excellence inside the classroom and in the real world.

Thank you for visiting our website and your interest in Wayne State University and the Eugene Applebaum College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences.  I encourage you to explore our website, contact us if you have questions, and consider us in helping you obtain your professional goals.
