BS, Healthcare Management

Timothy Thompson spent eight years in the United States Air Force (USAF) - Special Operations Combat Control Team. After completing his service, he held jobs in healthcare facilities, but realized that in order to advance in his career, he would need a college degree. He was in his late 30s when he decided to return to school and was deeply concerned about his ability to re-acclimate to the classroom. The NYU School of Professional Studies Division of Applied Undergraduate Studies offered the nurturing environment he needed to thrive and to pursue his dreams. Enrolling in the BS in Healthcare Management, his advisers and professors encouraged him every step of the way, providing the academic and emotional support required for him to succeed. Today, he holds a management position with the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA). His years at NYUSPS provided the perfect transition from his military career to the rest of his life.
