In November 1973, the Board of Trustees approved a concept document for the establishment of the College of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey-School of Allied Health Professions (CMDNJ-SAHP). In October 1976, the document was approved by the New Jersey Department of Higher Education and the School became a separate entity within the University offering eleven certificate programs on the Newark Campus. To better reflect its broadened scope, in 1981 the SAHP became the CMDNJ-School of Health Related Professions (SHRP).
In 1987 the School applied to the New Jersey Board of Higher Education to seek degree-granting authority. Subsequently, in February 1988, the School attained approval and initiated a B.S. in Clinical Laboratory Sciences with nine collaborating public and independent colleges. The Flexibility Legislation of 1992 enabled the University to extend its degree granting authority to include all undergraduate programs.
Today, SHRP is composed of 36 academic programs and numerous specialization within the program housed in nine departments. Many of these programs are possible through joint efforts with other colleges and universities throughout New Jersey.
