Trine University creates health sciences school

ANGOLA – Trine University is creating a health sciences school that will offer a doctor of physical therapy program.

Trine president Earl D. Brooks II said the program will prepare students to meet the growing regional and national demand for physical therapists. Max Baumgartner has been named dean of the new school.

The doctoral program will work in partnership with Parkview Hospital and Lutheran Hospital of Indiana, both located in Fort Wayne. The program will be housed in a 66,000-square-foot building on a Parkview campus in Fort Wayne that’s being renovated to house a biomechanics and movement sciences lab, classrooms and offices.

Trine is a private school located in Angola, 40 miles north of Fort Wayne, with nearly 2,500 students.
