HNFE has the second highest enrollment of degree-granting majors at Virginia Tech. Our unique course offerings develop students who have a strong foundation of knowledge, excellent oral and written communications skills, and the ability to critique and analyze research within the field. Our students are well-prepared to pursue careers in health care professions, research, and related fields.
We are a restricted major that requires students to maintain certain grade and GPA standards.
Highlights of our program:
- 60 to 70 percent of alumni are accepted into professional/graduate programs post-graduation
- Funded undergraduate research opportunities
- 46 percent of our undergraduates are on the Dean's List
We support student involvement in extra-curricular opportunities and individual learning experiences outside the classroom, recognizing that these activities promote leadership skills, networking, lifelong learning, and a commitment to community service.
