Introduction to Midwestern University
Overview of Midwestern University

Midwestern University is a health care university. It was founded in 1900 as the American College of Osteopathic Medicine and Surgery. The Downers Grove, Illinois, campus was purchased in 1986, and the Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine moved from its prior home in Hyde Park, Illinois, to this western suburb. Following the relocation of the College, the Board of Trustees voted to begin the development of new academic programs within the health sciences. The Chicago College of Pharmacy began in 1991 and the College of Health Sciences began in 1992. In 1993, the Board of Trustees unanimously approved a single educational mission for the institution, and Midwestern University emerged. The College of Dental Medicine-Illinois began in 2011.

“Physician Assistants (PAs) are health professionals licensed to practice medicine with physician supervision. Physician Assistants are qualified upon graduation from an accredited physician assistant educational program and/or certification by the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants. Within the physician/PA relationship, Physician Assistants exercise autonomy in medical decision-making and provide a broad range of diagnostic and therapeutic services. The clinical role of Physician Assistants includes primary and specialty care in medical and surgical practice settings in rural and urban areas. Physician Assistant practice is centered on patient care and may include educational, research, and administrative activities.”

A podiatrist is a physician that specializes in the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of diseases of the foot. According to the American Podiatric Medical Association in Today's Podiatrist, "Podiatrists are highly trained physicians and surgeons who treat one of the most fundamental parts of the body. Feet are complex anatomical structures, all-in-one stabilizers, shock absorbers, and propulsion engines that are instrumental to overall health and well-being. In practice, podiatrists can specialize in a variety of areas from sports medicine to pediatrics to surgery.  They work in a variety of settings including private practices, clinics, hospitals, and educational environments. Many podiatrists own their own businesses.  Podiatrists are the only doctors to receive specialized medical and surgical training and board certification in the care of the lower extremity."
