A new preferred admissions agreement between Loma Linda University and the University of Redlands (U of R) will provide a guided pathway to qualified students looking to pursue an advanced degree within LLU’s physical and occupational therapy programs, as well as the orthotics & prosthetics program.

“This pathway offers significant opportunities for students in our local community who are dedicated to furthering their healthcare education within this region,” said Richard Hart, MD, DrPH, president of Loma Linda University. “We look forward to collaborating with the University of Redlands to prepare their outstanding students whose career goals include serving patients in advanced methods.”

“This partnership is an exciting opportunity for our students in the health sciences, particularly those in our health, medicine, and society major,” said University of Redlands President Krista L. Newkirk. “The ability to easily transition into an advanced field of study, especially at a renowned institution like Loma Linda University, opens additional opportunities for our students committed to careers in healthcare.”
