The Kasiska Division of Health Sciences is focused on all aspects of health-related education and practice, including pre-health advising, interprofessional activities and course offerings, and post-graduate residency training. The Division also oversees University Health and the Wellness Center, ISU Clinics, and works with other colleges and departments that offer health-related programs (i.e. the College of Technology and the College of Business). The Division is further organized into two academic colleges:
- College of Pharmacy

Idaho State University’s Kasiska Division of Health Sciences provides continued leadership in the delivery of health care by educating caring and competent professionals across all dimensions of health and promotes collaborative research and practice in the health sciences.
Idaho State University is Idaho’s leading health care institution, as designated by the Idaho State Board of Education. It offers 75 percent of the state’s health profession degree programs. One-third of Idaho State University’s graduates receive degrees in the health professions.
The Kasiska Division of Health Sciences is dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for our constituencies by applying the values of excellence in research, partnerships in community service, and professional education into practice.
A combination of classroom and clinical experiences ensures that graduates are prepared for licensing exams and positions in a wide range of health care fields. Programs partner with hospitals, clinics, and specialized medical facilities throughout the nation to provide state-of-the-art training opportunities for students. On-campus and statewide clinics provide students with hands-on experience. Fifteen in-house clinics include medicine, dentistry, dental hygiene, audiology, speech pathology, counseling, occupational therapy, physical therapy, vestibular (balance), and wellness. Beyond the basic skill sets associated with clinical practice, we train our students to become leaders in their professions and communities. Doing this requires hiring and retaining nationally recognized faculty, using the most current teaching technologies, and giving students access to the hands-on learning opportunities they need for success as caring and competent professionals.
