Examples of Professional Schools include, but are not limited to:  Occupational Therapy, Nutrition and Dietetics, Public Health, Health Informatics, Health Care Administration, Health Services, Health Promotion, Health Communication, Medicine, Dentistry, Veterinary, Physician’s Assistant, and Health Information Technology.
