“ATSU is committed to continuing to educate healthcare providers in Mesa, Arizona,“ said ATSU President Craig M. Phelps, DO, ’84. “Alter is a pleasure to work with and is always responsive to ATSU community needs.”
Founded in 1892 and the country’s first osteopathic medical school, ATSU has grown into a leading graduate health education institution with residential campuses in Mesa and Kirksville, Mo., as well as a broad range of online programs. ATSU has a current enrollment of nearly 3,400 students and is comprised of six schools offering master’s degrees across allied health disciplines and doctorates in athletic training,
audiology, dental medicine, health administration, health education, health sciences, occupational therapy, osteopathic medicine, and physical therapy. In keeping with its nonprofit mission to care for those with little or no access to healthcare, ATSU trains students to work in rural, inner-city and other underserved communities.
