Noma Anderson, PhD

It is an exciting time for Health Professions as we study and practice in an ever changing healthcare environment. There has never been a better time to enter a healthcare field.

Health Professions, as a diverse group, account for more than half of the healthcare workforce in the United States today. Salaries continue to rise and jobs are plentiful. If you are looking for a rewarding career where you can make a difference, take the time to explore the programs offered through the College of Health Professions.

Educating tomorrow's healthcare professionals is what we do best. The College of Health Professions offers preparation to suit many different interests. From working in a clinical or research laboratory to providing direct patient care, from managing health informatics and information systems to providing oral health services, our dynamic faculties have created an exciting and supportive interdisciplinary learning culture. The accomplishments and accolades of our students and faculty are sources of pride for the University of Tennessee.

If you are interested in being part of the healthcare team, I hope you will contact us in the near future so we can work together to help you achieve your goal. If you have any questions or comments, please contact us at
