HRS 50th Anniversary
This year, Ohio State’s School of Health
and Rehabilitation Sciences (HRS)
celebrates 50 years of growth and
academic excellence. It all started when
the school was officially formed in July
1966 with nearly 280 students and six
undergraduate programs. It was first known
as the School of Allied Medical Services.
Since the school’s opening, 12,247 students have graduated from its
15 programs, producing the most allied health professionals in the
United States. The school
was also the first in the state to
offer a medical records administration program.
From physical therapy and health information management to athletic training and
occupational therapy, HRS offers its students several opportunities for growth and
the support of a distinguished and internationally recognized faculty. With access to
the Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute, the
Office of Research and an online baccalaureate degree program, students have
outstanding resources to make the most of their HRS experiences. Check out all of
the milestones from the past 50 years at medicine.osu.edu/hrs50.
