At the College of Health and Human Sciences, we believe that health care professionals have a unique opportunity not only to serve individuals, but also to elevate the well-being of our entire region. Here, you’ll learn and practice the skills that will make you a competent professional. You’ll be challenged to become a problem-solver who can act quickly and decisively — and who thrives in collaboration with others. And you’ll take your knowledge and abilities out into the community to serve while you train. By the time you graduate, you’ll have the expertise to care for patients, the confidence to be a leader in your field and the drive to make life better for everyone around you.
