This fall, Midwestern University welcomed its highest number of students to its two campuses in Downers Grove, Illinois and Glendale, Arizona. The total enrollment on the Downers Grove Campus reached 2,162 students and the Glendale Campus enrolled 2,464 students this year. Midwestern University is a graduate degree-granting institution specializing in the health sciences.
The increase in enrollment can be tied to the steady demand for highly-skilled healthcare professionals, and the planned growth of several degree programs including dental medicine, optometry, and physical therapy. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the healthcare industry will generate 3.2 million new jobs between now and 2018, more than any other industry, largely in response to rapid growth in the elderly population.
More students are choosing to receive their professional healthcare education at Midwestern University because of its excellent hands-on education, dedicated faculty mentors, and clinical partnerships that prepare students for successful healthcare careers.
