Office of the Dean
Greetings! Thank you for taking the time to explore the School of Health and Medical Sciences (SHMS) at Seton Hall University, where we teach the art and science of caring in an interprofessional, health-focused context.
Over 30 years ago, top administrators from 13 New Jersey Catholic hospitals and medical
centers met at Seton Hall University to address medical education within the state.
As a result, our School was chartered, combining the University's commitment to enriching
the mind, heart and spirit of its students with the mission of educating the healthcare
leaders of tomorrow. By September 1989, the first class of 150 medical residents and
fellows enrolled in the School's first fully accredited Internal Medicine Residency
Program. Today, the School of Health and Medical Sciences provides exemplary academic
and clinical education in graduate-level health sciences professional and post-professional
programs. Read more »
