A.T. Still University of Health Sciences — First in Whole Person Healthcare
Founded in 1892 by Andrew Taylor Still, MD, DO, A.T. Still University of Health Sciences (ATSU) is home of the world’s first osteopathic medical school. Recognized around the world as a renowned, multidisciplinary healthcare educator, ATSU instills in students the compassion and hands-on experience needed to address the needs of the whole person. The University has a rich history of providing leadership for comprehensive healthcare education and research.
In its 120-year heritage, the University has grown from a single school on one campus to six schools on two campuses.

ATSU’s investment in experienced faculty and state-of-the-art technology contribute to its reputation as one of the best multidisciplinary healthcare educators in the nation. Specifically, ATSU is recognized as one of America’s preeminent centers of excellence in geriatric health, intergenerational healthcare, rural practice methodologies, and applied wellness education.
Our students and faculty are part of a distinguished heritage of humanistic healthcare based on an integrated approach that begins with a belief in the interactions of the body, mind, and spirit and continues with an understanding of how these dimensions can be treated holistically. The University provides an environment in which students and faculty are continually challenged to cultivate a lifestyle of whole person healthcare through education, wellness training, nutrition, psychology, problem-based learning, and co-curricular activities. Each program, from audiology to dentistry, family practice to public health, integrates the principles of whole person care into its curriculum.
