Saint Xavier University was founded in Chicago by the Sisters of Mercy in 1846, holding the distinctions of being Chicago's first Catholic university as well as the first Mercy institution of higher learning in the United States. Initially serving as a higher education institution for women and the poor, today the four-year, private Catholic institution serves a diverse population of persons who seek a Mercy education that prepares them to become successful, productive and compassionate members of society.

Why Saint Xavier University?
While some students begin medical school immediately after graduating from college, the majority of students in health sciences programs take a year or more to further develop their academic, professional and personal qualifications before applying. There are many ways to invest in your individual development during these years. The MSMS program includes professional and personal development support to foster your holistic growth at SXU.
Additional affiliation agreements with professional health care programs are being actively pursued to help our graduates have a smooth transition into their program of choice.
