About the College:

The College has seven academic programs that are externally accredited.

It is home to more than 1,900 undergraduate and 950 graduate students and approximately 140 faculty and staff. The College is currently transitioning to become a college of public health. Further information about the College may be found at: https://chhs.gmu.edu.

The College has just opened its Population Health Center, which is a state-of-the-art clinical and research facility located in the Peterson Family Health Sciences Hall on the Fairfax campus. The Center will offer integrated primary and behavioral health care and house population-based research, while providing experiential learning and professional development opportunities within a transdisciplinary setting. The Center is home to the 10th nurse practitioner- led Mason and Partners Clinic, where nursing faculty work with transdisciplinary collaborators, students and community partners in delivering interprofessional health care in an experiential learning environment.

This telehealth-ready Population Health Center offers several features to support novel research, including a bariatric exam room, research interview rooms, DXA, fMRI, gait function, and a metabolic cart. An EMS supports the Center and its biospecimen collection and management system.

Just launched, the Center is home to the transdisciplinary Mason: Health Starts Here Cohort, a prospective study of the health of freshmen as they transition into adulthood.
