This is the Future of Science and Health Care at St. John Fisher College
This is research and innovation. Each year, more than 50 undergraduate biology, chemistry, and physics students, along with Science Scholars, work with faculty members on original research projects. This research results in journal publications, national academic conference presentations, and poster presentations at the annual Science Symposium. This experience helps students gain entrance into competitive Ph.D. programs.
This is patient-focused learning. Students work in clinical sites throughout the region, making a significant impact on local health care. The College produces the second highest number of health care professionals in the Rochester region, with more than 130 nurses and 60 pharmacists entering the workforce each year, in addition to students who pursue graduate training as medical doctors, physician assistants, physical therapists, and dentists.
This is community-minded care. Students in the sciences, nursing, and pharmacy perform hundreds of hours of community service annually in the Rochester region. In addition, they take part in medical missions in Africa, South America, India, Europe, and in the United States.
