FORT WAYNE -

Trine University plans to expand its offerings from the Rinker-Ross School of Health Sciences in Fort Wayne over the next few years. The university says several new degree programs will be added and enrollment will be increased for its Doctor of Physical Therapy and Master of Physician Assistant Studies.

Trine President Earl Brooks II says there is a need for medical professionals to care for an aging population. 

"By providing students in new areas of the health sciences with the career-focused training and practical experience that are already hallmarks of a Trine education, these new programs will help meet that need, as well as offer opportunities for graduates to be readily employed.", Brooks said. 

Trine professor Ryan Dombkowski was recently appointed to the school's health sciences leadership team and as associate dean of the Rinker-Ross School of Health Sciences. He will work with dean Max Baumgartner and undergraduate program dean Cathy Swick to guide the development of the program. 

The university plans to expand the health sciences program, which is currently in the university's Health Sciences Education Center. The school will continue to work with Parkview Health and more collaboration is expected. 

The Fall 2019 expansion timeline calls for the DPT program to expand 10 students to 45 per class, MPAS program will expand from 28 to 32 students per class and Trine will also launch a Master of Applied Health Sciences, which will offer at least 30 graduate credit hours. Trine also plans to launch an Associate of Science in Surgical Technology program, which will train students to assist in surgical operations.

In Fall 2020, Trine will launch the Physical Therapy Assistant program, Doctor of Occupational Therapy program, Master of Science in Anesthesia program, RN to BSN and an Associate of Science and Bachelor of Science in Radiologic Technology program. And in Fall 2021, Trine will offer a Master of Speech Language Pathology.
