College of Health Related Professions

Dean's Message

The mission of the College of Health Related Professions is to foster the development of professional, competent, diverse health professionals and to provide compassionate health care for an evolving urban population. The College seeks to accomplish this by providing a challenging and supportive atmosphere for learning that offers opportunities for structured experiences as well as independent inquiry.

CHRP students participate in an exciting urban educational experience that combines innovative academics, community service and clinical experiences, designed to help individuals become caring and capable health professionals. The faculty contribute to knowledge in health professions through advancements in clinical practice, scholarly activities, basic and applied research. Collaboration is emphasized among students, faculty, clinicians and professionals in health care and related disciplines. Students are prepared for professional leadership roles through course work, professional, campus, and community activities.

The College fosters ongoing professional growth by sponsoring continuing education opportunities in multiple professions and disciplines. The College strives to serve the urban community in which it is located by providing health services, community services, and education to the surronding neighborhood in Brooklyn and other high need communities.

The College of Health Related Professions is dedicated to educating the next generation of health professionals in diagnostic medical imaging, medical informatics, midwifery, occupational therapy, physical therapy and physician assistant. We also offer a number of certificate granting, continuing education programs.

I hope that we have been able to answer your questions regarding our health care programs. Thank you for your interest in the College of Health Related Professions.
