School of Pharmacy students participate in a Health and Wellness Fair in Market Square.

Healthy Neighbors, Healthy Neighborhoods

As a leading urban research university with highly regarded health sciences, pharmacy, nursing, and psychology programs, we're working to address critical community health care issues and make health care accessible to all our neighbors.

Whether through routine screenings, community pharmacy care or ground-breaking research, Duquesne students and faculty are focused on identifying and responding to social and environmental issues that put our neighbors at risk. As a vital contributor to our knowledge-based regional economy, our close connection with students and mission of service distinguishes Duquesne from other institutions.

Building upon the success of these programs, Duquesne plans to establish the College of Osteopathic Medicine, the first Catholic medical school in Pennsylvania, with the first class enrolling in Fall 2023.
