St. Norbert College and Concordia University Wisconsin School of Health Professions have established a partnership that would give current St. Norbert College students and alumni who have completed their undergraduate degree priority admission status in Occupational Therapy (MOT/OTDe), Physical Therapy (DPT) and Physician Assistant (PA) programs at Concordia. St. Norbert students can be of any major; three students will be admitted into each program as long as they meet the requirements.

“Faculty from Concordia University Wisconsin are eager to invite St. Norbert students to learn more about the advanced degrees we offer in the School of Health Professions,” said Linda Samuel, dean of the School of Health Professions at Concordia University. “This partnership leverages strength from both institutions and honors the academic accomplishments of St. Norbert students.”

“This partnership is a wonderful opportunity for St. Norbert students who are interested in pursuing graduate-level work in the designated health areas,” said Jennifer Bonds-Raacke, vice president for academic affairs at St. Norbert College. “Such a partnership is a testament to the high-quality educational experiences at both institutions and the dedicated faculty at St. Norbert.”

“The mission of both schools is similar, emphasizing and focusing on individual student development in addition to being service and community oriented,” said Dr. Emily Goetz, DPT, a 2014 graduate of St. Norbert and a Concordia University alumna who is finishing her orthopedic residency at Aurora Health Care in Milwaukee. “For St. Norbert, this agreement will further the appeal and desirability of their already strong science program. Many institutions housing medical professional programs give precedence to their undergraduate students. With this agreement, St. Norbert students, like Concordia students, will have priority in being accepted into the Concordia School of Health Professionals if certain requirements are maintained. For Concordia, the pool of strong candidates filling their programs will only continue to grow.”
