Two Wingate University graduate programs are proud to call Hendersonville, NC home: Physician Assistant Studies and the School of Pharmacy.
Nestled in among the rolling Blue Ridge Mountains and 22 miles south of Asheville, NC, Hendersonville is a delightful small city that is becoming a popular travel destination. With a population of almost 14,000, there’s a vibrant downtown with more than 100 shops, galleries and dining options. Beyond the city limits, the natural world offers world-class whitewater rafting, hiking and biking trails and serene mountain vistas.
Beyond the charms of Mother Nature, Hendersonville offers Wingate University graduate students the opportunity to hone their skills in a $32 million state-of-the-art Health Sciences Center. This building, a partnership between Henderson County, Pardee UNC Health Care, Blue Ridge Community College, the city of Hendersonville and Wingate University, contains smart classrooms, well-equipped laboratories, soft spaces for study and faculty offices. Students will have direct access to patients as well as collaborative learning experiences.
