In 2010, health science professional degree students made up more than a third (35.8 percent) of all professional degree students at UC, with the majority of them in medicine.

Health sciences students are in professional programs, academic programs or residency programs. Professional programs lead to professional degrees such as doctor of medicine (MD) or doctor of veterinary medicine (DVM). Academic programs lead to academic degrees such as the Ph.D. Residents are medical school graduates who are participating in specialty or subspecialty training programs such as pediatrics or surgery.

In addition to the approximately 12,000 students represented above, there are approximately 2,000 academic health science students in life science disciplines such as biomedical science, bioengineering, neuroscience and epidemiology.
