A.T. Still University of Health Sciences

Established in 1892 by the founder of osteopathy, A. T. Still, M.D., D.O., ATSU began as the nation's first college of osteopathic medicine and has evolved into a leading university of health sciences. Today we offer more than 20 master's degrees across allied health disciplines; doctorates in health education, physical therapy, and audiology; the doctor of dental medicine (D.M.D.); and the doctor of osteopathic medicine (D.O.).

ATSU educates students to become whole person healthcare professionals who continuously develop and demonstrate compassion and competency. We believe this commitment to our students, and by extension to the patients they will treat in the future, makes us the most distinctive health sciences university in the country.

At ATSU, you'll experience a rich heritage coupled with innovative thinking to give you the skills and education necessary to succeed. We invite you to learn more about ATSU and join our legacy as part of our next generation of graduates.
