Today, more than ever, healthcare is being delivered by interprofessional teams that provide person-centered care in clinics, hospital systems, the community, schools and more. While in the College of Health Sciences, you can shape your passion and explore where healthcare can take you, whether that’s at the forefront of cancer diagnostics, delivering care in a hospital or long-term care facility, leading the charge in value-based models of prevention and wellness or delivering an exercise prescription to friends and neighbors with chronic disease. Through experiential learning and innovative classroom opportunities, Health Sciences will help you unleash your potential and prepare to be a next-generation healthcare leader. Your journey will take you through many twists and turns, but follow the path with intention and you will shape the future of healthcare delivery for the hundreds of thousands of Delawareans and millions more around the country who will rely on you for their care.
You are the future of healthcare and that future starts today! The sky is the limit!
