A new ranking of America's best careers bodes well for students at Midwestern University.

US News and World Report recently published its 100 Best Jobs of 2015 listing, ranking careers based on a combination of factors that include financial compensation, the balance between professional challenge and stress levels, and opportunities within the various fields. Five of the top 15 careers represented in the list are part of Midwestern University's graduate healthcare education offerings, including dentistry, which was ranked first overall thanks to salary, low unemployment, and work-life balance. Midwestern's College of Dental Medicine-Arizona is one of only two dental schools in Arizona, while the College of Dental Medicine-Illinois is one of only three in Illinois.

In addition to dentistry, other Midwestern programs that ranked in the US News and World Report list's top 15 careers include osteopathic medicine, physical therapy physician assistant, and occupational therapy.

Since Midwestern's founding in 1900, the University has gradually expanded its healthcare career offerings, creating programs in ten colleges across two campuses in Illinois and Arizona: the Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine, the Arizona College of Osteopathic Medicine, the College of Health Sciences, the Chicago College of Pharmacy, the College of Pharmacy-Glendale, the College of Dental Medicine-Arizona, the Arizona College of Optometry, the College of Dental Medicine-Illinois, and the College of Veterinary Medicine.
