About the College
Within the University of Delaware College of Health Sciences, research provides an evidence-based foundation for the education of the next generation of thought leaders and healthcare professionals.
Our College is also a place where partnerships play a key role in promoting health research and education. High-quality undergraduate and graduate programs, research seed grant programs, and clinical research projects enable us to provide our students with rich classroom, laboratory, and clinical experiences.
Our programs encompass a broad and dynamic collection of specialties, including medical laboratory science, kinesiology, applied physiology, nursing, physical therapy, behavioral health and wellness, and nutrition. In each of our programs we create an experience that shapes changes in practice based on scientific evidence. Our approach is to translate our strong platform in interdisciplinary science into health practices, therapies, and interventions that result in immediate improvements in people’s lives.
Our students receive early immersion into practice settings and our faculty’s world-class research programs. As a result, our graduates are well prepared to pursue careers in various health professions, as well as to continue their education in one of the medical fields or enter a field of graduate study to pursue scientific investigation. Our ultimate goal is to help our students excel in their chosen profession in the arena of health.
