Today I noticed someone on MetroLink wearing a St. Louis College of Pharmacy sweatshirt. I started thinking about just how many different educational institutions have health professions programs in the metropolitan St. Louis area. There really are quite a few!
Of course, everybody knows the WashU Medical School and the SLU Medical School.
But did you know:
SIU-E also has a School of Nursing, located on the main campus in Edwardsville IL.
I'm sure I probably missed something, since I could only think to search for "nursing" and "allied health" programs. Nevertheless, its clear that training people for health careers is a big business in St. Louis. I'm no expert, but it's safe to say tuition costs and program quality vary widely. Choose wisely.
